Optional Theme - Outdoor Fun

Here's our sketch for you this week from Try Stampin on Tuesday with the optional extra theme of Outdoor Fun.  I thought I would do a Christmas in July theme also which seems to be the thing in the crafting world and it gives me another chance to use this fabulous set.  It's an Anita Jeram stamp set called Snow Happy by Colorado Craft Company.

I started off with some watercolour paper and inked my background using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I stamped the image in Versafine Clair Acorn which is a bit softer than using a black.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour in the images.  I added some Liquid Pearls in White Opal for the bunny's tail, the deer's tail and the snowball.  The sentiment is from the same set and I used an archival ink in Cobalt Blue by Ranger.  I added some dots to continue the theme of the snow around the edges and added some to the deer.

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

The Holly and Ivy - Anything Xmas Goes 
Christmas Kick Start Challenge - anything fluffy or furry 
Ike's World - AG option of Christmas 
Double Trouble - Christmas in July 
Inkspirational - Spots/Dots 
Creative Friday - Christmas

Such a lovely card - that outline colour works wonderfully - better than a harsh black - as you say. Thank you so much for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT
