Christmas Card

Here is my first Christmas card for this year.  I've been obsessed with autumn colours for some time and thought I really must move onto something else so since the colour blue is the challenge for November at Country View Challenges I thought blue was the way to go!

I used a lovely stamp which was a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine from Christmas 201:


I inked the stamp with Faded Jeans and Broken China distress ink and spritzed with water before stamping and repeated all over the card, turning the stamp and masking as necessary.  For the single top one I white embossed the stamp and then sponged ink for a reverse effect:


I really like the snowy, wintry feel and I enjoyed using the blues.... :)
