I've been using the fabulous MIDWINTER plate once again to create a very traditional Christmas card.
I began by cutting a circle from white card to create an aperture, stamping the focal image onto the circle cut from the card. My image has been coloured with Distress Markers adding a little vintage photo around the edges to age a little.
I stamped the foliage from the focal image around my aperture, using Distress Markers to ink the areas I needed and stamping randomly around the edge. I added the aperture on top of the circle, raising a little to give dimension. Fired brick ink has been added to the outside edges and I have matted my piece onto red and green card stock to echo that very traditional feel. For added dimension I have included three dimensional roses and foliage to compliment. To complete I added the fabulous sentiment from the MIDWINTER plate, again colouring with Distress Ink.
