More Christmas!

Thanks so much to all of your for your well wishes with the migraine.  You guys are so kind.  I'm often touched by the friendships and wonderful people I've met through blogging- thanks again!  Turns out that the migraine was being triggered by some muscle spasms in my neck and after a visit to my chiropractor I am feeling MUCH better.  So thanks again for your prayers and well wishes. Truly.  

Up next today is a card featuring this beautiful new Christmas stamp from Penny Black.  Seriously, this is such a gorgeous stamp it would look beautiful simply stamped in black and white!
4202L Berry Red, Snow White
Available for PreOrder from Mementos HERE
Also available as part of the Mementos Bundle of Savings HERE
I began by stamping using Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Next I colored over the stamped image using PITT Artist Pens.  The background was distressed with Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, and Broken China Distress Ink.  Using paper and Weathered Wood Distress Ink I masked and inked the mountains.  I then added Candi dots to the corners and the sentiment, Penny Black Winter Wonders (available for preorder HERE or HERE) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the outer edge of the tag was distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Oh, and be sure to stop by the Memento's Blog today for another video tutorial!

Thanks for stopping by! 
See you tomorrow with another Christmas card!
