Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
This is my last Christmas challenge for 2012. I purchased this set of stamps (Reason for the Season - Our Daily Bread booth) at a stamp convention a couple of years ago and never used them. Getting in some of these challenges are going to make me dig deep into my stamp stash and get to using them.
On the top of the bauble I took an old bauble cap and cut it in half and glued it in place. Colored stamp image in with copic's and antiqued with Distressed inks (Brushed Corduroy) around Santa and Baby Jesus.Used Marianne dies to make the pointettia's and dry embossed them.
White Perfect Puff on santa's coat.
Stickles on the pointettia's
ink used - Adirondack Earthtones - Pitch Black - this ink works best with my copic's, dries very fast and no smearing.
Pattern paper - Anna Griffin - Twinkle Bright Christmas Pack
