Lets celebrate at the ATP Exchange


'Lets Celebrate' is the new challenge over at Artist Trading Post Exchange. There are many things that we celebrate during the year,  but for me,  at this time of the year my choice is Christmas. 
With fond memories of the the long gone days, when my children believed in Santa.

Sorry there are not many photos showing the stages in making this card. The light wasn't too friendly. I did manage to get one of the layers . I used pre- patterned papers music and floral from a  Prima  Marketing pad. 
To add some texture I used  Tim Holtz  Festive stencil and  Studio 490 Transluscent  paste. When dry I rubbed over this with Treasure Gold.
Other additions to this card were, a piece of die cut  trellis, and highlights to add even more textures using Frantage embossing powder  bits and pieces from my stash .


All  the extra shading was Vintage Photo distress ink. The Santa focal image is a Paper Artsy stamp, I love this traditional version of him.
We would love to to celebrate and share your mixed media pieces with us at ATP.Exchange, please pop over for all the details and see what we have been making.
There is a £10 store voucher for you to win offered by our Sponsor at the Artists Trading Post.
I have linked the products I used which are available from the store.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.
