Vintage Christmas Card

Hello!  As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I always appreciate the visit and the opportunity to share with the stamping community!

Today I have a Christmas card, with a little bit of a vintage look.


I won this stamp set the other week from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and I decided to use it for the first time with their current challenge.  

(I loved the way the card looked in the dim late afternoon light.)

I colored the image with alcohol markers, then I distressed it and all my papers with tea dye Distress ink.  The stamping on the bottom is actually little bunches of foliage and berries.  I thought it would make a nice little accent to the card without adding any bulk for mailing purposes.


Supplies: Graphic 45 by Hampton Art Night Before Christmas stamp set, Memento ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers,  Distress Ink Tea Dye, Mementa 6x6 paper pad

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
