Peace on Earth

 

Hey there! I guess it's been awhile, sorry for the absence here. Just going about the business of life and summer with a little lack of mojo thrown in! I'm jumping back in head first with a Christmas in July card to add to my sorry little stash. This is for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge


I pulled out an older Altenew set along with a couple of their inks. After stamping the poinsettias and their leaves, I used the same inks and my waterbrush to wash on some color. Next came some PRS splatters and finally a Rubber Cottage sentiment. 

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying your summer. We finally have a break from the extreme heat and I'm down with that! Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful! I love the image and it's a great addition to any stash -- welcome back, but we all know about "life".
