Winter Greetings

 Morning.

Today, I am playing with a new stamp from Penny Black called Tranquil. Very simple stamping using my MISTI, some markers and a Mini Mister.
 I placed my stamp inside my Misti, coloured the image with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process adding darker shades of color until I was happy with it.
I sponged on some Salty Ocean Distress ink over the background then splattered some acrylic white paint over the top.  It looks like stars instead of snowflakes.
I die cut an oval and used it to frame my image. 
 I stamped the sentiment from the Brush Pines set and done.
Feeling happy to have another holiday card finished.

  5. What a fitting title for that stamp image. I just love how you used it too. Framing it that way really focuses on the pretty scene. And, your coloring of it is fantastic. This is one of the stamps on my wish list and hopefully, one day I can own it too!

  11. Someone's been watching PB&J videos. ;) This is sensational, Karen. I'm a sucker for old fences, or any old wood actually, and you've made it look even more attractive.
