That time of year

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
I return from my blogging sabbatical with renewed vigour and start as I mean to go on! So, it's August which can mean only one thing-the c word.
Here is the first of this year's Christmas designs from me, I like it but think it needs a bit of tweaking before I make a whole bunch of them!

After learning from the wonderful Cheremane Smith, the technique of using the alcohol inks on photo paper to create fabulous backgrounds I just had to give it a try :)

I used:
5x7 card blank
Photo paper
Alcohol inks in Pool, Cool Peri, Cloudy Blue and Silver
Jet black Archival ink
Tree stamp from Indigo Blu
Christmas sentiment stamp from Dreamees
Gunmetal mirri card
Teal pearlescent card
Teal ribbon
Blue and white Stickles
Gems and a charm from my stash!

I hope you like it, let me know and Happy Crafting xx
