Christmas Fusion in distressed inks

It's My Birthday today

so treating you to another Christmas Fusion card

this time done in distressed ink
don'f forget they will be on TV tomorrow as a Pick of the week .....on Create and Craft.

here i used the smaller stamps from the plates inked with distressing ink onto water colour paper then useing a damp brush just pulled the ink out from the edges. add extra ink to get some more detail into the images
i made a stamp positioner from a piece of paper cut in a L shape so that the image was away from the edge once it was dry i went around the image with a red glitter pen matted and layered onto gold mirri then onto core-dination card stock did some faux stitching with white pen a gingham bow and gold flat back pearls
a very modern look and so easy to do ...

Great card, love the deeper red you've used much nicer than the brighter red often used at Christmas :-) x
