I used this wonderful old world Santa image called Father Christmas #SD311. You can find this stamp on this page of Pat's Technique Junkie Stamps website http://www.stampcamp.com/christmas.html .
I stamped the image three times but only watercolored one image with Twinkling H2Os. I added some off white flower soft to his beard. I sponged around the edges of the two images with a soft brown ink, and sponged again with a dark red ink. I used a Christmas colors background paper on the red card stock base card.
Then I used a white layer that I sprayed with red irRESISTible Texture Spray. They are similar to Goosebumps but in colors. They are made by Tsukineko. Pat carries them in her booth at stamps shows. I sponged the edges of that layer with soft brown ink, and then the dark red ink. The red texture spray resisted the sponged colors and remained bright and beautiful!
I layered two sponged Santa images in two corners. Then I added a layering piece behind the colored Santa image. I popped up this layered Santa with mounting tape. I added the two embellishments in opposite corners.
This is not a difficult card but I think it really pops.
How are you doing on your cards? I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was filled with love and family!
