I Do Believe.....

Time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing the fabulous Snowy Woods Stamp Set.
I created a mixed media backdrop for my focal image using Distress Paints.
I brayered Distress Paint over my background and then die cut two layers of baubles, one of which has been stamped with the fabulous Father Christmas image from Artistic Outpost. One bauble has been die cut from Metallic Kraft-Core cardstock and the smaller bauble has been die cut from my mixed media masterboard I created for the background of the card.
I also added delicate splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint to add to the snowy feel along with some snow using a DecoArt Snow Writer. The vintage seam binding has been coloured with Dusty Concord Distress Ink to coordinate with the background.
I added a die cut sentiment 'believe' to complete my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
