Winter Glitter

Yes, I know it's 100+ degrees outside, and it hardly seems like the time to think about Christmas cards! But ladies (and gents), it IS time to get started! :-)

This image is from the new Penny Black Christmas collection, and it's called Winter Glitter .

I stamped it on watercolor paper using VersaMark , then embossed with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers. After coloring, I added Christmas Red , and Holly Stickles.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection. I used Metallic Mini Brads on each of the four corners to embellish.

So sorry for the photo. It's cloudy and rainy here this afternoon, so there is no sunlight. This is the best I could do after taking about 20 photos.

I hope you all have had a great weekend. It WAS short, wasn't it?

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back soon with something new!
