Christmas Time!

Happy Wednesday and so happy you could visit today! I don't know about you, but I so wish it was Christmas or at least a little cooler! It is never too early to start thinking about those Christmas greetings for family and friends and for AO's recent blog hop, this is what I came up with!
Using the MidWinter plate, I stamped the background on a shimmery paper using the pine needles in a random pattern and shaded with Antique Lines and Vintage Photo!
I used Tim's Pocket watch to frame the lovely home scene by cutting this out on grunge paper, painting it white and then in a lighter shade of green. Once dry I applied Rock Candy Crackle and stained with Pine Needles, let this dry and added a little touch of white paint for snow. I ran a bead glossy accents and applied some of gold and green tinsel that I trimmed off, alcohol inked the beads and shaded the little holly leaves.
The winter scene was stamped on watercolor paper using Coffee Archival for the house, fence and little deer and I tapped on green for the trees using Stazon. Once colored, I applied Rock Candy Stickles to the snow, roof and chimney top!

Thank you so much for stopping by and there is still a good week left to join in the "Anything Goes" for the July Referral Program!

I so love the tinselled pocket watch hanging off the lights... brilliantly done - a perfect frame for the lovely snowy cottage.
