I can't believe it!!!!

Hi guys,
I've made a card and it's Christmas based!!!!!! am I ill? lol
now those that know me know I don't do Christmas till December or the earliest November so what's going on!!!!
must be Tegan's effect on me!!!!! he he

I thought I'd put on a card today as I have been busy doing stuff but for my DT'S so I couldn't show them yet,
I saw that TOMIC wanted make your own background, and I thought Christmas!!
still can't believe it you know!!

I made the background using three colours of Distress ink which I added in various depths to the watercolour paper as this blends so easily and takes liquid too,
I then stamped my various stamps and heat embossed over them with white embossing powder, to finish off I  sprayed a mist of Blackberry Autumn ink and perfect pearls mist perfect pearl too, highlights of stickles star dust are on there too, the whole thing shimmers beautifully in real life!
Tilda and the houses are coloured using my copics, and are layered on with pinflair glue, I also slightly shaped Tilda with a shaping tool so she didn't lie flat,
her laces are done with stickles too,
the fence is edged with DI vintage photo and coloured very lightly with Antique linen,
the text stamp is of course by Magnolia and has been stamped in memento rich cocoa,
the shape is a Go Kreate die,
