My take on the Sketch & Challenge!!!!

My first Christmas in July Card is using the Frosty Snowflake Die~Namites this one.
I die cut it twice in white card stock and colored it using the Prima Chalk Ink in Teal Damask and water (water coloring with inks) a great way to stretch your inks.
I also used the Holly Border Die~Namites Die, die cutting the same way. I used the Tattered Angels High Impact Mixed Media Paint Platinum, added Glimmer Glaze Fine Glitter Paint Sassy Silver for the berries on the Holly Boarder die...also I cut the die piece apart to create more volume on the sketch design. My Doodling is created with a black pen and Glimmer Glaze with a paint brush. Adorn with stamping, twine, netting, splattered glimmer glaze, and pearl gems.

Pretty Poinsettia

My second Christmas in July Card 
is using the Pretty Poinsettia Die~Namites Die. I die cut it twice painted with Tattered Angels High Impact Mixed Media Paint in Green. Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Bordeaux and Glimmer Glaze Sassy Silver...Love how the paints dries glossy and tons of texture. 
I used the same process as the first card I created. 

I added Ranger's Stickles Xmas Red for the berries and to out line the poinsettia!
