Cozy Christmas Wishes

 Morning.
Meet today's card.

I pulled out this Stampendous stamp that I have had for years and thought it was time to make a card using it.  Love the sweet, vintage look it has.

I began by masking off my white cardstock using Painter's tape and stamped the image using black Memento ink.  I colored the girls using Copic markers and sponged on some Distress inks around the images.  To add to the postcard feel, I stamped the Penny Black script faintly in the background.  It really helped to add further interest to the overall design.
 I splattered with white acrylic paint then added some Wink of Stella to their faces which unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo.
Lastly, I mounted the stamped image onto a piece of maroon paper that I had silver embossed on the edges.



 Adding my card to these challenges:

  14. What a beautiful way to use that stamp, Karen! I have some similar ones that never get inked because I'm stumped on what to do. Love your coloring & the silver embossed edges! PS--I'm so honored you picked my OLS card--thank you! It truly is one of my favorites even though I could have made it 20 yrs ago as a beginner if I'd had good quality cardstock & Perfect Pearls--haha!
