Christmas in July
First I sponged the background in Marina Mist with some accents in Not Quite Navy and Crumb Cake with a little Soft Suede.
I just love the new stamp set - Plant Hope. I used markers in Old Olive and Always Artichoke - with trunks of Early Espresso and Soft Suede. Stamp once - then stamp off in the background.
After completing the forest I stamped a little white to soften the look and create swirls of snow.
You probably can't see it - but there is some Smooch Spritz and then some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to make it all sparkle. It is a soft, peaceful look to go with the sentiment from the hostess set.
Granted - I would not want to make 100 of these - but it was fun making a few.
