Christmas In July - Partridge

Hello!  Here is another entry for Christmas in July.  I am so happy to be getting a head start on my Christmas cards this month.

I stamped the image and then colored with pencils and odorless mineral spirits.  This was a really fun image to color, especially the pears.  I sponged over the coloring with light blue distress ink and used a gel pen to add sparkle to the pears and all the leaves.

I used a lot of patterned paper -- I have been trying to use more of my stash.  

Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Partridge in a Pear Tree, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs, Derwent Coloursoft pencils, American Crafts Candy dots, Crate Paper Peppermint paper pad, Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, Gelly Roll Stardust pen

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
