Christmas in July

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello everyone, its Riet here.
Funny, making Christmas cards in July.
Well I'm actually happy with it, then I'm definitely on time.

I started with the background.
I used light blue watercolor paint and plastic wrap.
So it looks like the ice on the window in winter.
Did the same with a piece of paper and green watercolor paint.
While drying I colored Megan's Christmas bird with pencils.
When the background has dried, 
I stamped with black stazon Megan's bird on the background.
Then cut the bird out and glued it on the background.
 With a die, I cut out the branches.
Glued the pearls with a hotfix and colored the lights and berries with a red marker.
Now some accents on the berries and lights and eye with the white gel pen.
I used a die for the “merry christmas” and black paper.
Then I sponged the edge of the card with black soot distressink.
Glued the card on a black mat and its done.
Hope you enjoyd this little tutorial.
You can still join the christmas in july challenge.
There is some stamping rubber to win.
Have fun making your beautiful cards.
