Candles, Lights or Anything Bright for Allsorts Challenge w/ Anything Goes Option

Hello and welcome! 

It's time for a new theme already at Allsorts challenge! It's Helene's week to host and she picked the theme of Candles, Lights or Anything Bright. We also have the option of Anything Goes for those of you just wanting to share with us, so feel free to link those up if you like to. Our prize is an Ultimate Glue kit by Stix2 that will go to one lucky participant!

I thought this cute stamp from Lily of the Valley was perfect for the theme. While mine is a rubber stamp, LOTV does have an etsy shop now with many of their stamps converted to digis, maybe this one is one of them. 

It's been stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Bristol Vellum paper and colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Some time ago I purchased a pencil coloring class from Kit and Clowder but really should revisit the class as I've already forgotten some of the tips from there... 

To make the snowy background I used a mask of the same image (I had this mask from when I used the stamp previously) over the image, flicked some masking fluid over the background then, after it was dry, I inked it up using Weathered Wood Distress ink, then rubbed off the masking fluid with a paper towel.

The snowflakes were done with a Martha Stewart punch. My punch is old but there are several snowflake punches or die options. The postage sentiment and die are oldies from my design team days at Whimsy Stamps. I couldn't find anything close to this but do like this Stampers Anonymous Holiday Postmark set and there are a couple of options HERE at

I used Forest Moss distress ink to stamp the sentiment, it matches the color of my designer paper perfectly. Paper is from my stash and I don't remember which company it's by.  

A peek inside - I added another strip of patterned paper and inked the edges with Weathered Wood ink as well and I stamped a Christmas sentiment there as well (not pictured). 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today! Hope to see you joining us at Allsorts!
