Today I have another Christmas card to share:
I tried out a new stamping technique for this card. I dabbed Distress Stains in various colors directly on my stamp and then stamped onto my paper. Easy Peasy! I love the result. I simply added a text stamp with Archival Ink in coffee, and some Distress ink on the distressed edges. I finished this card off by adding some Ideology rick- rack trim and mounting it on a card.
Here is the inside:
Just some simple layering and a sentiment.
And now for my version of the Tim Holtz January Tag:
I followed Tim's tutorial, using supplies that I have on hand.
Here is my background:
I used Brushed Pewter Distress Stain as a base, and stenciled a layer of snowflakes with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I thought my tag needed another layer, so I stamped the blueprint snowflake with Watering Can Archival. That made me happy. I stamped my numbers with black Archival. I sanded them a bit, as I did the "time" text, which is a Remnant Rub.
I really had a blast making this tag! Can't wait to see what's up for February.
