Happy Little Stampers July Christmas Challenge

Hello! There is so much going on at Happy Little Stampers and it is all exciting stuff.

Today is the day that we start our monthly Christmas Challenge with all the new designers that have joined the team!


Our first Christmas Challenge is to create something that features a tree. 



Here is my card -


The background is one that I had made and put aside. When I use my brushos/watercolours, I usually have extra panels that I save for down the track. I really loved how this one turned out. 

You can see my video for using Brushos (HERE)

As my panel was completely dry, I was able to emboss directly onto it. These trees are from SU!'s Lovely as a Tree. 

It looks quite brisk and brrrrrr. Nothing like where I live ;)


Pop on over to the challenge blog because the inspiration from the team is amazing! We hope to see you play along.

Thanks so much for looking xx

  12. Remarkable card and unusual background! Blue smoke hovering white, winter trees ... or maybe not smoke just water under the surface of ice ...? And it's a secret!
