Christmas in July - Traditional Colors

Here's another Christmas in July swap, Non-Traditional Colors. I have a lot of cute simple, small stamps that I never know what to do with. With the help of the Faux Postage stamp and a coordinating Template, I took a very simple Christmas tree and made it into something even better. The color behind the trees was done with a stipple brush in two shades of green. Then I stamped the flourish on the background piece using the bleach method. I love this technique, and it works especailly well with dark colors.
