Season's Greetings

Hi my friends, I'm back to share another card I made for the Facebook Live launch of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Christmas Collection using Christmastime 2, Yuletide Gatherings, Lumberjack and the Baubles Shifter Mini Layering Stencil from Set 45. If you missed the fun, you can check out all the products and inspirational samples on Tim's Blog HERE
I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller than an A2 card, inked the sentiment from Christmastime 2 with Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder. I repeated this process 3 times to make the sentiment dimensional and very glossy.
I spritzed the panel with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray, flicked on some drops of Frayed Burlap, spritzed with water, dabbed with kitchen towel to create the water droplet effect and dried.
I inked the Lumberjack background stamp with Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink, picked the stamp up in my hands and stamped randomly on the background.
I applied Candied Apple and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks through the Baubles Mini Shifter Mini Layering Stencil from Set 45 using mini round blending tools.
I stamped the small poinsettia image from Yuletide Gatherings on to Distress Watercolor card inked with Candied Apple and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks, fussy cut and layered to create dimension.
I applied Distress Collage Medium Matte around the edge of the panel with a brush and added dots to the centre of the flower, sprinkled with Vintage Platinum Distress Glitter and once dry, matted the panel on to an A2 card blank which I covered with Idea-ology Classic Kraftstock, sanded back to reveal the kraft core.
Toodle-oo for now
