Vintage Christmas


'Vintage Christmas', is the theme for our next Challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
Remember we like to see  a vintage/shabby chic style for your entries.

This card was layered up using Kanban papers, the edges distressed with the trusty blunt scissors.
The Holly was  coloured with water colours and  I used Distress  stickles    to age the lamp post, it looks  and feels quite rusty in real life..
Both are Alterations die cuts.
The Postcard stamp is by Stampendous, and was given the glitter treatment to highlight the snow.
All the other shading is Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.

Other challenges entered are-
Stampin' for the Weekend -Use some texture
Artful Times -Challenge 18 Anything Goes
