I am working on my Christmas cards at the moment to try and get ahead and today I have created a festive card for Artistic Outpost.
The background has been coloured with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and Pine Needles Distress Ink, applying both to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then mopping up the beads of ink. I then embossed the background piece to add further interest and highlighted the texture and design with Treasure Gold Olive Bronze Wax.
I added some seam binding which I coloured with Pine Needles Distress Ink along with some natural twine and a Tim Holtz Tidings Token.
I added the Father Christmas image from the Snowy Woods plate to a die cut frame die cut using the Our Daily Bread Elegant Oval Dies. Natural twine has been added behind my focal point for added texture and interest.
I used Tim Holtz ShadowPress to add 'believe' to the bottom of my card along with mirrored stars which I coloured with Alcohol Inks to coordinate with my design.
A monocle has been added to the focal image, adding touches of Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to the monocle so that it blends with my design. I also added a further Tidings Token attached to the monocle. From this picture you can also see the shimmer from the wax added to the embossed design.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
