After a lengthy absence, I am delighted to be back on the TJ Designer's Blog! I'm sharing my Father Christmas card in support of Pat's 30 Days of Christmas feature. What a great way to inspire and get those creative juices flowing!!
I've chosen Father Christmas (SD311) as my focal image--I find myself drawn to the vintagey look of this stamp and use it quite often! I've also chosen a technique from the Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle and Shine CD to draw attention to this wonderful image and give my card the much needed bling (it's Christmas afterall)! The technique is called Acetate Sparkle. If you do not already own the SGS&S CD, you can order it here--what a great gift for you! Be sure to check out the rest of the selections, also :)
I created the frosted background with an embossing folder, white pigment ink and my white distress marker. I love that thing!
Just a bit of burlap, felt and a bauble......all finished!
