Christmas in August

It's SSOOOOO hot right now, what better way to cool off then having Christmas in August. Not to mention Dreamweaver is introducing new holiday images at CHA summer.
For the first week I decided to use one of my favorite holiday images, LL589 Musical Christmas:

First paste with Dreamweaver White Matt Paste, let dry.
Place image over dry paste and stencil color with pigment ink.
I used: Gold on the harp, Copper on the horn and Rust on the violin.
Cover with clear embossing powder, heat. While still hot, cover with a second layer of clear embossing powder.

Draw a shadow line around left side of image with brown marker.
Add red glitter glue to berries and Diamond glitter glue over scroll.

Now it's your turn.

So, to get into the holiday spirit a little early, link your own Christmas in August creations to the Dream It Up! blog mr. linky, or email pics of your creations to, for an opportunity to win this wonderful newly released Heart Ornaments:

Don't you just love this new design? There are several newly released stencils and products from CHA last month, which you can view for yourself HERE. During the week of August 20th - 25th, the Dream Team will be posting all week with a hop on Saturday to top it all...featuring all of these new fabulous collaboration with the Woodware UK team. Just a little may want to buy all of these new designs now, so you are ready and waiting for the inspiration that will come your way that week! Meanwhile, check out what the rest of the team has been creating this week:
