Enjoy The Beauty of The Season

Hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Wishing you all a wonderful New Year too.
Today I am using the Christmas Chalk and MidWinter stamp sets from Artistic Outpost to continue with my rustic Christmas designs. I have stamped the Let It Snow randomly onto the background of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink along with the foliage stamp from the MidWinter stamp set around the edges of the background for a further layer of interest.
I have also added stencilled stars to the background using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and I have added delicate splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint to the backdrop.
I die cut two baubles from white card and then added a good thick coat of Wendy Vecchi's Crackle Texture Paste and then set aside to dry. Once completely dry I painted the baubles with Walnut Stain Distress Paint adding a couple of coats and drying with my heat tool. I then spritzed each of the baubles with Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain.
To add a further touch of shimmer I rubbed over each of the baubles with touches of White Fire Treasure Gold Wax. I have also included two enameled tags, decorated with remnant rubs, attached with jump rings from my rustic bows. The fabulous "Enjoy the beauty of the season" sentiment is from the MidWinter stamp set.
To comnplete I added 25 using Stencil Marks to the top of my card, it adds another touch of interest to my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you continue to enjoy the festive period.
