Fa la la la la!

I’ve always said, to myself, that I should start my Christmas cards early…once a month at least, so that I have a bunch done before it becomes a mad rush to get finished.  So, when I saw a post from Holly Brown for The Holiday Inspiration Club from Rogue Redhead Designs I decided it was time to get started.  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to ink up all those Christmas and winter images I’ve collected over the years and have not yet used.
The first challenge is to create a one layer project.    I pulled out this cutie from Purple Onion Designs.  The bird is Silver from the Stacey Yacula Studio line.

First I stamped the winter bough in Bamboo ink from Memento, then I added Silver on top.  I also stamped the ornament from winter adornments and colored all with Copic markers.  I added lots of sparkle using a Quickie Glue Pen and ultra fine glitter.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Wishes Sentiment Set.
Now all I have to do is keep it up!  Wish me luck!
