Christmas Ted

Well I thought I had better do my post this morning incase the day runs away from me again!!  Here is another of those cards I did for The Glitter Pot's celebration weekend using the teddy Christmas stamp by Penny Black as my main image.  He was stamped and then masked so that I could stamp the Hero Art trees behind him and was then coloured using Copics.

I made my own backing paper for this card by stamping a large Hero Arts background stamp onto glossy white card with Versamark and allowing it to air dry. Dye based inks in different shades of green were then sponged over the top and the holly stamp was stamped with Stone Grey StazOn once the inks had dried.

The Hero Arts snowflake was stamped and embossed onto the main card using Versamark and clear embossing powder. The same snowflake was then stamped onto a piece of acetate using white StazOn which was layered to the base of the card.

All the stamps and the copics are available from The Glitter Pot.
