Christmas in July - Artistic Outpost July DT Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team July Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates/Themes, this months DT Blog Hop theme is Christmas in July.

Artistic Outpost has so many wonderful Christmas plates, it was hard to choose which one I wanted to create my project with for this months hop!

Inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch, I used stamps from the Artistic Outpost Sleigh Ride and Mid Winter plates to create my card.

The scene and sentiment from the Mid Winter plate were stamped in Coffee Archival on Vanilla card stock.  The sweet children are from the Sleigh Ride plate, stamped in Coffee Archival on Vanilla card stock, cut out and colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  I adhered them to the stamped Vanilla panel with Gel Medium.  The pattern paper is from the Bo Bunny Snowfall Collection.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Mid Winter, Sleigh Ride
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Espresso, Vanilla, Baja Breeze
Other - STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, Ink Blending Tool, Blending Nibs, Gel Medium, Gamsol, Bo Bunny Snowfall Pattern Paper
