I'm Back!

I'm back! Today's Chirstmas in July challenge on SCS was appropriate because it felt like Christmas on our vacation! It was pretty chilly and windy in the U.P.! I never took a sweater or sweatshirt off the whole time! This didn't stop my son from putting on a wet suit and swimming in the 52 degree water! YIKES! We had to make him get out when his lips started turning blue! We still had a wonderful time and will be going back in another week! Hopefully the weather is a little bit nicer then!

I used the brayered sky technique on this card. I masked the moon and snow drifts. I used a white gel pen to add snow to the tree limbs. Added some glitter to give the snow drifts dimension. I used soft sky, baja breeze and blue bayou for the sky. The stamp set is SU's Season of Friendship.

It's good to be back in the world of stamping! Hope you all are well!

Hugs!

Emily

Super looking sky, Emily. The touches of red with the bird, ribbon and brad tab make the whole card pop.
