O is for Overlay

Hellooooo
Its Wednesday and time
for a new ABC Christmas Challenge!


The challenge host this time is the lovely
Lorraine she has a theme that sounds hard but once you see the DT makes you will definitely be inspired! 
The theme is O for Overlay

The sponsor of this challenge is
All Dressed Up.

For my overlay I have used Vellum I like that is is a good thickness so you can work
well on it but still see through it, I have stamped onto watercolour paper with distress inks but sprits with water to create a watercolour effect, the vellem that I stamped and embossed the text on and a few enamel dots.


Here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Cards und More C5 - # 163 - Embossing
Holly Jolly Christmas #76 - Inspired by a Song - Snowflakes
Inky Chicks  #69 - Christmas in Summer
Sweet Stamps -  Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #303 -  Favorite Embellishments - definitely enamel dots


have a great week :)
