Tis the Season

Good Morning
Just a fun, simple holiday card today using a Monoprint as my starting point.

I do love the look of plaid and decided to try and make a 'rainbow' looking one.
I began by inking the back of my stencil with lots of different colours of Distress Oxide inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto my heavy white cardstock to get a monoprint.

Keeping with a simple design in mind, I placed the piece inside my Misti and stamped this fun sentiment from STAMPlorations with black Memento ink then clear heat embossed to help make it pop.
I mounted the finished stamped piece onto another piece of heavy white cardstock and pop dotted that onto a plain white card base.

As the big day gets closer and closer I wish you peace as you finish your preparations.

Adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says Wed.- PARTY TIME

Stamps- Tis the Season (STAMPlorations)
Inks- Various Distress Oxides (TH); Tuxedo Black Memento
Paper- heavy white (Scribes Nook)
Accessories and Tools- Misti (My Sweet Petunia); pop dots, Gingham stencil (SSS)
