Christmas in July

The Challenge over at IndigoBlu is Christmas in July - the perfect time to use the fabulous Stag Cliffhanger stamp for the first time!


The background is coloured using Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord and Scattered Straw inks along with the moon and hills masks by Clarity.  The wonderful stamp by IndigoBlu is stamped in Black Archival and I used the tree to edge the scene.  I added 'snow' with dries white glue and Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sparkles and used Quickie Glue Pen and the sparkles on the tree and edging.  The last thing is Card Candi dotted with 'snow'.  I didn't use any extra layers as I didn't think it needed it.

I nearly forgot I also would like to enter this into the Stamping challenge over at That's Crafty.

Please pop over to see the amazing DT makes and the other entries over at IndigoBlu and That's Crafty

I hope you have some nice plans for the weekend - I am seeing my Son and his girlfriend along with my Daughter and Granddaughter tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to it!

Thank you for visiting me, I really appreciate it loads and loads!  Take care, Christine xxx

This card is absolutely gorgeous! Everything about it is so perfect. You have created such a serene winter scene with it. I think using the branches to edge your image was a brilliant idea.
