Vintage Christmas

Happy Thursday! If you're here for my Three Clover Thursday Challenge, we're taking the week off, as Kerry's a bit under the weather, we'll resume next week! But don't go just yet, I've got another Holiday card to share with you today.


I love the Vintage images from Artistic Outpost, and the Old St. Nick from Snowy Woods makes the perfect Vintage Christmas card. Here I used the Spritz 'N Flick Technique to add a bit of an aged look to my image. The image was stamped in Black Archival on White, then I used an Ink Blending tool to add some Frayed Burlap to all areas but Santa, crinkled the card stock, then blending on more ink, then came back in with Fired Brick Red, adding it to Santa's hat and coat. Finished with the spritzing, let dry and assembled my card.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Frayed Burlap, Fired Brick Red, Black Archival
Card Sock - Black, Riding Hood Red, White
Other - Basic Grey Wassail, Ink Blending Tool, Craft Mat, Spritz Bottle, 1/4 Circle Punch
