The focal image "Holly and the Ivy" from Artistic Outpost was stamped in Black Archival and then watercolored using markers from Stampin Up. I touched her hair trim with clear glitter pen and left some white edges to give a photo appearance and then added the photo corners.
All the papers layers are from Our Daily Bread Designs "Christmas Paper 2013" collection and each layer was shaded in Brushed Corduroy. The Merry Christmas is a older Sizzix die and I cute the Ivy from one of Tim's Dies and inked over that in Shabby Shutters and shaded.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit today and as a reminder the "Show Us Your AO Art" for August is so wanting to see you lovely works of art using of course, those AO fabulous stamps.
