Tag Tuesday-Christmas "Colors" in July

When I saw that the challenge on Tag Tuesday was Christmas "Colors" in July, I immediately knew what image I would use.



I found this lovely bathing beauty on The Sum of All Crafts and saved it knowing it would come in handy for a future project. The background was stamped with the cheesecloth backgrounder from CHF , inked with pine needles distress ink, spritzed with water, stamped with starfish by Tweety Jill, dry embossed and sanded. The British Sea Weed logo is from Vintage Printables.
