Stampotique Christmas in July

Rollin, Rollin, Rollin Twinkies been Snowballing!
I wish it was Christmas just for a day to cool down!

The background was created by applying DecoArt Gesso to 8"x8" chipboard sheet
I tore some paper to mask out the hills and then applied DecoArt Dioxadine Purple and Aquamarine for the night sky
Once dry I used Titanium white to created the hills
and blended the purple and turquoise to shade the hills and the small moon

Once dry stamped the Owl tree with Stazon and highlighted the owls with moon light

The snowball was Created with modelling paste and painted and decorated with Stampendous Shaved ice flakes,Twinkie was coloured with Promarkers

Happy Christmas!
