Once again I am working with kraft card and to create my background I applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink to Tim Holtz Star Layering Stencil, spritzed with water and then placed the stencil onto the card. I also added a touch of background stamping with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
The Christmas tree has been stamped onto kraft card with Potting Soil Archival Ink and matted onto a dark brown card stock. I have also applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges for definition.
I placed the Layering Stencil over my Christmas Tree image and then used Tim Holtz spritzer and a Distress Marker to add subtle stars to the background and I sprayed all my layers with Biscotti Perfect Pearl Mist to add a touch of shimmer.
I added a further layer of interest to my design applying embossing paste through the Layering Stencil for added texture applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges. I also died some seam binding with Distress Ink and added to the top of my card along with a Tidings Token. A also included a small 'believe' banner using Remnant Rubs.
A rust star also adds another element of texture to my design.
