Christmas Decor with Topflight Stamps

Hello there! It's Christmas in July time and today I'm sharing a project I made for Topflight Stamps using a Lynne Perrella Christmas stamp set. It's a simple little mixed media canvas that would make a great decoration for Christmastime.

This started as a 5x7 inch canvas that I painted dark blue. I used the (non flowery & buggy) corner of the Stamperia Dragonfly & Butterfly Stencil with black modeling paste to add some texture. When that was dry, I misted it with Mica Spray and Spray Distress Stain to add some glimmer and help delineate the stenciled texture.

Next I used Prima waxes to highlight the raised areas further and add more glimmer. (You can't have too much shine in a Christmas decoration. ;-) )

I stamped the PaperArtsy angel image onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock (smooth side) with archival ink and then watercolored and stenciled on it.

Thanks for stopping by! Below is a list of supplies I used. Be sure to check out the Topflight Stamps blog for more inspiration. There is always something fun to see there! Have a great week. =)

Also, there is a Christmas in July sale going on right now through July 15th at Topflight Stamps!
