Father Christmas

Meet Father Christmas.  Are you ready for his arrival?

Today, I am again playing with inking my stamps with Brushos.  I just love the look they give to my stamping.  Kind of a hand painted result when using them.

Grabbed my MISTI to stamp the border and my Tall Timbers stamp from Penny Black.  I randomly painted some Brushos onto the stamp and pressed onto my paper.  Changed the direction of my stamp, brushed on more Brushos and stamped again to create the edge border.
 Next, I painted this vintage feeling Santa that I love from Stampington with more Brushos and stamped.
I cut him out using the stitched border from MFT and cut a larger one to mount it onto.  I pop dotted it over the background and done.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

May Father Christmas shower you with many blessings!

This is so amazingly lovely and well done. You are sure inspiring me to get out my water color granules again, but will have to wait until after Christmas. Your work is wonderful!
