Winter Wishes

This week for Artistic Outpost I am using the SNOWY WOODS stamp set.

I decorated the background with Tim Holtz star layering stencil using Pine Needles Distress Ink, blending a touch of colour around the edges.. I also added a touch of background stamping using Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I added a second layer again with stencilled stars, applying background stamping to the stars and matting onto a piece of brown Core'dinations card stock. A central panel has been added along with Winter Wishes using Tim Holtz Holiday Words.
I cut out three stars from white card stamped the Father Christmas image onto one of the stars and added a touch of shading with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Two further stars have been cut from white card and this time stamped with images from the CHRISTMAS CHALK stamp set stamping each of the images with Potting Soil Archival Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
