Be Inspired with Christmas in July The Alley Way...

Guess what!  The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired Challenge now runs every two weeks!!  Every second Friday you can drop by for another FAB dose of The Alley Ways Be Inspired, and who couldn't help but be inspired by this gorgeous photo montage?! I love the peace sign the little girl in the centre is holding, so I created a Christmas Peace frame.  The outline for "peace" was created by tracing my old Basic Grey monograms onto white cardstock and mounted onto chipboard. The Alley Way Stamps Christmas Magic "Peace" sentiment and the Fa-la-la Christmas Star were stamped all over the word in Versamark Watermark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was then oversprayed using Glimmermist Olive Vine and any excess ink was lightly dabbed off before carefully drying with the heat gun. The chipboard dove was painted in ivory and oversprayed with Glimmermist Gold. The background paper is an old piece from my stash, but you could create your own by stamping and embossing with red tinsel embossing powder.

Hope you are inspired to play along too, there are great stamps as prizes!
This Challenge is open until July 19th.

My Christmas Frame also fits in perfectly with this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge of
