Quick Christmas Card and quick service

 
I sent for a new sheet of stamps yesterday, from Stamp Addicts, who have "Whacky Wednesday" each first Weds of the month.  They arrived today in less than 24 hours and I've made this very quick card because I just couldn't resist a quick play with them even though I should be doing lots of other things!  Very speedy service, thanks ladies:)

I brushed Adirondack inks in blue and purple all over the image, then used bleach to remove most of the ink from the stamped portion.  Never tried this before, what a fun effect!  Used watercolour pens to add a bit of colour, some Prisma glitter glue on a few bits here and there, added some silver ribbon and a few layers of paper - job done!

I'm off to try a new craft club tonight, better dash!  Back later to enter some of the Christmas Challenges that are around this week...
... Here I am, entering my card for the following challenges:
 Paper Play - Christmas in August
Simon Says - Christmas in August
Woodware USA - anything goes
Fussy & Fancy - Christmas in July
