Merry Christmas!

Happy Friday to you all! Even though it is August, you know how quickly the time can pass and before you know it, Christmas is right around the corner! This year, I decided I would start a little earlier and this wonderful "Holly and the Ivy" single stamp is just perfect with Our Daily Bread Designs "Christmas Paper 2013" collection! Sure makes life easier around that busy time of the year!
The focal image was stamped in Black Archival and then using Stampin Up Markers various areas were watercolored. I also used a clear glitter pen to add a little extra interested to part of her hair decorations. A little white edge was left for a matted photo effect and of course some photo corners.
Merry Christmas and the Ivy die cuts were the final touches layered up on that pretty Christmas paper! I did ink over the cut ivy with Shabby Shutters and shaded the leaf tips with Brushed Corduroy which was also used to shade all the paper edges.

Thank you for visiting today and don't forget about the "Show Us Your AO Art" for August and the chance to win a prize!
