guys - this company is the BEST - and don't be scared about international shipping - it's LITERALLY less than $5!!! 

so cute!

i looooooove that Christmas tree image from (the perfectly named...) Oh Christmas Tree stamp set! 
I stamped both trees a bunch of times and colored them in rainbow colors (of course...!) with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! then I fussy cut them out, and added some glitter to the lights!

the background was ink blended with Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks! then I splattered some water and white acrylic paint on top!!

the sentiment was created by combing the Clear Letters and Christmas Surprise stamp sets! loooooove the scripty font! swoon!
