Deck the Halls with Inky Paws 2018 Blog Hop

I am so excited for today!

today we're hopping along, and feeling the Christmas spirit with Newton's Nook and the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws blog hop!

today, I combined some new and old products for my card!

and I just LOVE how it came out!
I die cut the ornament shape using the Ornament Shaker Die Set and then ink blended with Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Back soot! The ornament hanger was colored with Mustard Seed!

then I stamped the palm tree image from Sun Soaked Christmas, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut the images out! I also stamped the image onto the ornament itself and glued on the images!

lastly, I used the Petite Snow Stencil and some white embossing paste for some texture in the background!
