A Rustic Christmas

Morning and welcome to my blog, hope you enjoy your visit and a huge warm festive welcome to my regular followers.
Today's card measures 5" x 7" and the background of my card has been coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink with delicate touches of stencilled stars using the same Distress Ink to give a tone and tone effect. The focal point of the image is a die cut bauble which I have then stamped with the reindeer from the MidWinter stamp set from Artistic Outpost.
The background of the central panel has been decorated using Tim Holz Christmas Layering stencil applying embossing paste over the stencil which has been coloured with a touch of Potting Soil reinker to coordinate with my design.
Tucked behind the bauble is a die cut snowflake, die cut from white card using Tim Holtz die, colouring with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then spritzing with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist and adding a metallic touch with White Fire Treasure Gold Wax. I also included a Merry Christmas sentiment to the top of the bauble.
I have also added touches of the White Fire Wax to the background of the card to add a touch of sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
