Christmas Ornament Series – week 2

13 Weeks ‘Til Christmas – Holiday Ornament Countdown with Kitchen Sink Stamps!

The Ornament fun continues! This week’s ornament is a Christmas Lake Scene (before the lake freezes) with a holiday Loon & Poinsettia.

I was really happy with how the stamped water from Cabin by the Lake, turned out! The natural wood color added depth to the ripples in the water. Adding Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen as highlights on the water, makes the lake look like it is glistening as light bounces on the water.
