Merry Monday Christmas Challenge~ Bells

Hooray! I found time this morning to get crafty and join in on the fun at Merry Monday where the theme for this week is "Bells".

I started with a piece of water color cardstock and stamped some pine boughs from PTI's Peaceful Pinecones and WPlus9's Merry & Bright, using Peeled Paint, Pine Needles and Brushed Corduroy distress inks and spraying the inked stamps with water first before stamping them onto my cardstock. I also gave the panel a color wash using Peeled Paint distress ink. Once that was dry, I lightly stamped on a Christmas Script background in gold, using Sweet N' Sassy Stamps, Light of Christmas. The bells were added from PTI's Bells & Boughs. I also heat embossed the sentiment, from Bells & Boughs, in gold.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
