Another CAS card but this time I made my own background.
The card is for the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers - No Papers
CHNC - Word Christmas on Front
CHNC - Anything Christmas
I have created my own background for this card using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and some acrylic stamps from Cardmaking in Easy Steps magazine. The Distress Inks that I used are Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles. I used a clean shaving brush to apply the Distress Inks to the card starting with the lightest and working through to the darkest. I then used three bauble stamps and the same Distress Inks to the background.
The sentiment is one from Desert Diva. I really love the shape of the sentiment. I have matted the sentiment on to green. The christmas tree embellishment is one I got from a clearance bin a couple of weeks ago. It just adds the right finishing touch to the card.
