Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge - Christmas in July

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a holiday card to celebrate Christmas in July!  There are SO many fabulous holiday images at Outlines that the hardest part of this challenge will be picking only one.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

This beautiful dove is a perfect image for holiday cards.  I stamped and embossed the Flying Peace Dove (G-1117) on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The background was all colored with BG10 to give a realistic sky for my peaceful dove.   What's difficult to see from my photo is all the shimmer to the cardfront.  I added AB Swarovski Crystals and Silver Glitter Liner pen by Viva.  I really love the amazing shine that the Silver Glitter Liner adds to my image.  It's amazing in real life and is the perfect way to adhere my crystals!  Rounding out the design, I used a black multiliner to hand draw a simple frame.

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  I'd love it if you'd visit everyone and leave some love!  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
