' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Christmas songs

Monday 1 December 2014

Christmas songs

Time for challenge #27 over at Vintage Stamping Challenges. The theme this month is Christmas songs and I chose the classic White Christmas sung by Bing Crosby.

I saw this stamp and thought the lyrics suit it to a T:

I used Core'dination Black magic cardstock for my background, tearing, distressing and embossing to make the most of its core colour.
I stamped my image with Versafine black ink and brayered the background with dye inks. I used bleach to recover areas of snow and added gel pen on the tree, stars and moon.
Of course a Christmas card needs a bit of sparkle so use a Spica pen to add subtle shine in the sky and on the snow.

I hope my card will inspire you to join in the fun, as always, you don't have to create a vintage project, but you do have to include stamping though - no digis allowed. Our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft so don't miss out on your chance to win.
Go on and hop on over to the Vintage Stamping blog and see all the DT’s work for more inspiration.

I am also entering the Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge.
Thanks for coming by,
