42 days to Christmas!

Today I am off to Cambridge for a workshop tomorrow, and a shopping trip today! Is that Christmas shopping you ask? Of course! lol I certainly won't be shopping for Christmas cards.. I mean I have them, don't I? I have at least 6! and here is the latest one... This is a technique involving masking, and distress inks, and some glitter!
I stamped the Father Christmas image in the middle of the card, and also stamped him on a post it note. Cut out the post it note carefully, and place over the stamped image. Distress ink round the edges of the card, starting with the light colours, and building up to the dark colours gradually. . Remove the post it note, and carefully distress ink the Father Christmas if you want to. I left his face blank.
I then inked up one of Tim's stamps in white Dabber, and inked it lightly round the edges.
Vintage style card!
Have a very creative Saturday

I really like that card Jennie. Never seen that stamp before either. Very refreshing.
