Christmas in July

Hello there!

Its Christmas in July and I’m glad I was able to do some simple background technique on today’s project. I know I might be too late to try coloring backgrounds using distress inks but its good to try things out even if its been around for a while.

I used three different ink colors to color my background then heat embossed some stars and sentiment using silver embossing. I must say it looks so pretty in real life. The big snowflake is a die cut using Simon Says Stamp & I cut it from silver glittered paper.

I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I used  Sketch Saturday challenge # 420 and color inspiration from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown-July colour challenge.
