I must confess that with 90+ degree weather for a good part of the summer and definitely the past few weeks, I am not exactly in the Christmas spirit.   However, a lot of challenges this time of year are “Christmas in July” themed and our PIXIE DUST STUDIO BLOG has that theme this week.  So, I decided to go with a slightly non-traditional Christmas creation while still capturing the spirit of the season.  I chose purples and greys for my PIXIE DUST STUDIO SHOP image and used some purple core-dinations paper for the 2nd later and the backing on my image.  I used a Marianne Designs die for the purple and a Verve stamps die for my PIXIE DUST STUDIO SHOP image “I am Gentry.”  Image colored with Copics, Fiskars gel pens and Sakura pen.  I added papers from SU (greens) and DP from American Crafts and Imaginiece (sp?), dots added around edge with Sakura pen, sentiment and die from Memory Box, glitter brads and snowflakes from my stash.  I sure hope you like it!
