Promises to Keep


Hello friends,

Just a quick posting this morning for Artistic Outpost.  I made this green and silver Christmas card using the Snowy Woods plate from Artistic Outpost.  The main image and sentiment were stamped with Jet Black archival, colored with distress ink pads and sponged with Vintage Photo DI.  I silver embossed the pine branches along the top and then sponged Pine Needles DI over the panel.  Then I dabbed some Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and laid the panel on it, resulting in lightly mottled silver over the sponging.  The snowflakes were cut from Ranger foil tape with Spellbinder dies as was the label die cut used in the bottom cluster.  Silver ric rac and the bells from the Tim Holtz Christmas Adornments were the simple embellishments used.

That's it, quick and easy for today.  Let me know if you have any questions and thanks so much for stopping by!

A really gorgeous card Linda! I love the stamp, I've been meaning to get it for ages as it has a snippet of my favourite winter poem. The way you coloured the image is superb and all your details are wonderful. Chris x

Absolutely lovely tinting on the image, Linda (I have it, and haven't even inked it up yet - thank you for the nudge!), and the background's beautiful...

I love this stamp, and what you did with it is beautiful. I haven't used this particular one yet, I may have to make another card for my son who's a real fan of Robert Frost. (I had to make one in a hurry to get out with Xmas money inside!!)
