Bloggers Challenge is Christmas in July. At Stampsmith the challenge is Christmas in July, summer colors. The Stampendous challenge is citrus.
I began by stamping my focal image, The Conductor from Stampsmith, on glossy cardstock. I colored the image using dye inks and my coloring nibs. I die cut the image using a Spellbinders ornament die and layered it on some lime green cardstock. The background was made by dividing the cardstock in 4 quarters. Using a cube stamp of pine branches from Stampendous I stamped in opposite corners with Adirondack citrus green ink. The other two corners were colored using squeezed lemonade distress ink. The background panel was layered on a lime green panel and then everything was layered on a yellow card base. The sentiment is an outline sticker. I think the combination makes for a bright and cheery, if non-traditonal Christmas card.
