Country Time Christmas

  Today at Flourishes, we're back with snowy slopes, country crisp temperatures, and a cozy house waiting for Christmas decorating.  This set, illustrated by Lauren Pope will have you heading for the hills in search of the perfect tree. This earthy and scenic image is paired with five different sentiments and a flurry of snowflakes swirling in the winter sky. Set measures 4" by 6". The Design Team created some wonderful country Christmas designs to show off to you in our Blog Hop today.


After I colored the stamped image with Copic markers, I sponged distress inks around the edges in the appropriate colors to add color to the background.
