Now for a little bit about my project.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions Portland Head Light (lg) with Archival ink (Coffee) and colored it with Copic markers. The sentiment, also by Repeat Impressions is 424-G, Wishing you a season, was stamped in Barn Red Distress Ink onto vellum and heat set with Clear embossing powder.

Die-Versions Sweet Wordlet "Merry Christmas" was die cut from Sticker paper and covered with Fire Engine Red glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The moon, Santa with his reindeer, and the "stars" are the negative pieces from the DV Christmas Eve Scene, which was also die cut from Sticker Paper.  The stars were originally snowflakes, but I colored them yellow with Copic markers.  The moon is covered in Firefly embossing powder and heat set and Santa's silhouette is covered with Blue Raven glitter.  Spica glitter pens were also used throughout for a touch of sparkle here and there.



We hope that we have inspired you to be creative, and that you'll do a bit of shopping at the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' websites!

Thanks for stopping by today!  

Your next stop on the hop is Patti Gilliam's blog!
