It's raining today.... so to cheer myself up I went on a mini shopping spree to the Craft Shop! I don't really need the "it was raining" excuse though ... I go when it's raining, sunny, snowing. windy... I doesn't really matter!
I needed to top up on my card stock as I was running out of certain colours. But of course, I couldn't just buy card stock... I had to take a look at the dies and stamps!!!! (to my husbands frustration!). So I also got the "Tim Holtz Alterations Torn Notebook Die" and some paper lace doilies... The shop has a little table with all the sale items, loads of them all mixed up, where you really need to go through everything, moving around stuff to find something you like... and I found a lovely mini stamp with a quote on it. This will be great to stamp as a sentiment on the cards!
I can wait to use all the great stuff I got today!
And the purpose of this post... I want to show you a card!
This time I've gone for the Vintage theme.... I've used this lovely Mo's Digital Pencil digi stamp. It's called "Santa Kai". Isn't he lovely?
I stamped the sentiment and the "Seasons Greetings" stamp in brown, and I used the Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique linen around the edges.
The big stars are hand-made, and I used my Joy Crafts snowflake die to create the snowflake.
The paper I used is from the Desert Blooms collection by First Editions Paper.
I coloured the image with my promarkers. I tried to colour it in a "vintage way" (my own method, still learning!) so I added some yellows to the red clothing to give it the "faded" look.
For the Santa suit I used: Slate, Poppy, Antique Pink and Buttermilk with the blender pen.
For the pyjama bottoms I used Sandstone and I used the blender pen to fade the colour. The same with the present and the ribbon...I decoupaged the present and added some colouring over it.
