TESC123.....Merry Christmas




Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! Hope your week is going well so far!

Today's card share is made with this weeks sketch on Taylored Expressions Blog.

I wanted to use this little Vintage looking Christmas girl out of the "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set. I love how this card turned out, so sorry as I usually don't say that but I think she is sooooo cute. I stamped her onto watercolor paper and colored with my aqua painter and I used, real red, pink pirouette, old olive, early espresso and blush blossom. I added some stardust stickles to the ground and the fur on the little girls coat and hat. I used some Xmas red stickles on the tree and a touch of icicle stickles on the star. I used my rectangle and scallop rectangle nesties to cut out the image and the mat. I keep the nestie in place on the main image panel and sponged around the edges, I grabbed a sponge that I thought I had use with some crumb cake ink and when I started sponging I realized it was not crumb cake but probably crushed curry, but I think it looks alright, sorta vintage.

I used some crochet lace that i had in my stash and weaved a bit of rel red grosgrain ribbon through the top. I punched out a snowflake with very vanilla card stock and added some stardust stickles to it and a antique brad in the center. the sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I stamped with black stazon onto vanilla card stock and punched out with the word window. I matted it with some real red and the modern label punch and added some more vintage brads. The DS paper is from a retired pack, Dashing, I think. I haven't gotten any new Christmas paper yet. the base of the card is very vanilla, sponged with the same dirty sponge ans the image panel.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
