Merry Christmas

I just love how Penny Black collage stamps make for quick and simple cards.  This was created with 4268K Crystal Drops:
I stamped the image two times.  Next I added Distress Ink for the sky and ground (Scattered Stray, Faded Jeans, and Gathered Twigs) and colored the stars with a yellow Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen.  This was then die cut using a Spellbinder's die.  Finally, on my second stamped image, I colored the trees with Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens, cut them out, inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and layered onto the card.  Twine and pearls add a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  
See you on Wednesday with a new PB&J Video Tutorial.  
Here's a little sneak peek...

I do agree the collage stamps make it so easy to have a finished card in no time...except for the coloring. I need more coloring practice before I will get anywhere near what you've just made! Gorgeous card!!
