Here is my Christmas Card using Stamping + Sponging + My Choice of Die Cuts and Alcohol Inks Background.
I started my main image by using a piece of a Smooshed Alcohol Ink background using Loll's Tutorial on Smooshing Inks. I thought it made a pretty Wintery Sky. I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks: Sailboat Blue and Juniper.
I used CUTplorations smallest "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies" to die cut the frame on the main image and largest Die on the card front.
I sponged a piece of Arches Mixed Media paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn and die cut with Sizzix Tree Line Die. I then attached to my AI die cut background using SU Fine Tip Glue Pen. Then splattered diluted white acrylic paint using a paint brush.
Stamped my SU Christmas Greetings (ret) sentiment using Archival Jet Black ink. Attached my main image with foam tape and done with another Christmas card for my stash:-)
