Colouring any image - so many choices! As I'd used my favourite colouring stamps recently (Best Birds and Butterfly Basics) I turned to my pre-order box of goodies. Out came Beachy Little Christmas. Perfect for those of us who live in warm climates or like me, live somewhere where Christmas is mid-summer. This will be available for order after 1 September, from the new Stampin' Up Holiday Catalogue. There are several images but I liked this beach-ornamented Christmas Tree for my first experiment.
For this, I used blender pens and ink to colour the tiny ornaments and the bucket. I stamped the shells, also part of the set, then coloured them, over-stamped them with a darker splatter and fussy cut them to add in under my tree. I used the fine splatter stamp from Touches of Texture for my 'sand' and for the shells.
Since my box also held some mini-sequin trim, I used a bit of that under the sentiment and pulled a few off the string to put in the centre of the round baubles on the tree.
