No Coloring Christmas Card

If you are not going to color an image, I think it often looks nice stamped in navy blue.  I used distress ink, then spritzed the stamp very lightly with water and stamped onto regular ivory cardstock.  

This one will probably get duplicated with different bows and papers.

  6. I've never tried a non-colored image before, but I do like it done in navy! That pretty gingham bow is the perfect accent embellishment to dress up this image too! NJ!

  7. I just love the non-colored image with the blue!! Stunning design with all the navy!! Thanks for joining the ODBD Challenge!!

  8. This is a lovely stamp (and I found a similar one at Michaels on sale over the Christmas holidays - so was very happy to see your treatment on this card). It really does look so lovely & vintage in the blue shade you chose to stamp with, & the tiny country check bow was just the perfect accent to complete the mood of this very pretty card. TFS & joining in at Rudy Day #2. Happy wkend.
