Vintage bells

Hi and welcome to a scheduled post to announce the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week out theme is -

HOLIDAYS

For my DT inspiration I went with a vintage feel OL Christmas card.


For more information on the stamp set used pop back later! (here)

The bells were stamped and masked while the evergreen boughs were stamped in a mix of DI's, Chipped Sapphire and Mowed Lawn I think! I used Copics to colour the bells and then drew the strings freehand using a black fine liner.
The snow in the background was made by stamping small circles from Balloons and Banners by STAMPlorations embossed in detail white embossing powder. For a vintage feel I used a dark cream/ latte coloured cardbase.

This week we are sponsored by Kylie at 


Wow, thanks Kylie.
So check out the rest of the DT and join in.
