Christmas Plaid

I know it is early for Christmas cards  but I wanted to play with my new stamps from Penny Black and  the Cas challenge at Splitcoast this week was to use plaid,  so here you go.   I have been playing with my Distress inks so much lately and wanted to try the water-stamping technique.  So, here is what I did to create the main panel.  I inked a plain white piece of cardstock with 3 shades of Distress inks.  When dry, I took my stamp and sprayed it with water and stamped it onto the panel.  Since the Distress inks are waterbased, you get a faint water mark on your project.  Next, I overstamped and embossed with white, cut the panel with my Spellbinders die and mounted it onto a piece of plaid from the new Madison paper pad.
So glad you came by to take a look today.
