Be Merry

 I played around with the fun colors from Mona's CR84FN5 and still playing along in the Hero Arts Monthly Challenge.

I loved creating the background with the Hero Arts Cling Music image and the large Flourish.  The Santa image is from Inkadinkado - Paper Artsy.  The music was stamped first using Versafine Vintage Sepia. Heat up the background to dry out. Stamp the flourish multiple times using versamark and clear emboss. Sponge Hero Arts Soft Sand Shadow Ink over the entire surface and brown dye ink.

Here is the pretty inspiration photo from Mona.


Very fun... I have another card on the table that I hope to finish up today.

Thanks for stopping by...
