Penny Black Sentinel Christmas card

Hello friends and welcome to Challenge  #112- over at Simply Create Too where the challenge this time is  CHRISTMAS IN JULY. 


Yes I know we are still in June, but the challenge goes on until 8th July! Some people don't like to hear the C word so early in the year but you know my philosophy - make lots of Christmas cards throughout the year and you can enjoy all the run up festivities come December, safe in the knowledge that your stash is complete. I came up with this card using the Penny Black Sentinel stamp.

I watercoloured the trees and stag and added some penciling for definition once it had dried. It's hard to see in the photo but I added glitter to the snowfall for some frosty shimmer and I finished it off with a frame and embossed sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

Why not visit the Simply Create Too blog to see inspiration from my fellow team mates, and join in with us this time.

I'd like to play along with

A Snowflakes Promise #24 - anything goes as long as it's Christmas or winter

Oh and something Hels Sheriden gave me the heads up about is the Ranger Scrubbie it's a grey dense foam block that you use with soap and water, but it's amazing at getting ink off your hands!
