All Wrapped Up in Christmas

I am continuing on with the Catch the Bug Christmas in July Challenge and here is my Day 3 which is Gift Wrappin' with non-traditional Christmas colors.  So I used the JJ Wrapped Up which I can't find in the store anymore and colored her in blue.  I made my own hand written sentiment.

Wild for You

I couldn't help myself....I had to invest in the new Distress Oxide Inks.  For this card, I did blending of the Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick and then sprayed water on top, heat it, and then stamped an image from Sweet and Sassy.  For the background, I put the three inks on my craft sheet sprayed water on that and ran my watercolor paper through it and heat it and repeated the process it several times until I got the final color.  Then I sprayed water on the top and heated that.  I stamped the sentiment which is from My Favorite Things.  It was a lot of fun.
