A Vintage Christmas

Happy Friday and Happy New Release! Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the brand new "Toy Emporium" and I just love the vintage feeling and hope you do as well!
This card started with corrugated cardboard that was cut with the Postage Die and then DecoArt Crackle Paste was applied, dried and then Raw Umber Antiquing cream was applied and a mist of Carbon Black spray. The excess was wiped off and then shaded with Distress Ground Espresso.
The images were stamped in Black Archival and inked over in Antique Line and then shaded.

The Sentiments were treated in the same way. Thank you for visiting today and please join in the monthly "Show Us Your AO Art" for a chance to win a store voucher using of course stamps from Artistic Outpost.

Love this, Terry - the crackle over the corrugated card makes such an interesting background and the new Christmas images are very sweet.

Such a beautiful, rustic Christmas card! I love your amazing crackle (how do you get that???)over the corrugate board as a backdrop to this image. Lovely!
