Good morning! It's Penny Black week at Stamper's Dream and today is my turn to play! :-) Penny Black has always had wonderful wood mounted stamps (and clear ones), and now they also have CLING mounted stamps! Woohooo!! You get the same "feel" of a regular wood mount, but take up much less room to store! (Not to mention they cost less! :-)
My card today uses one of the new cling mount stamps - Penny Black's Antique Santa. I fell in love with this stamp from the moment I saw it! There is something slightly Scandinavian about this santa, which I just adore! He also reminds me of those gorgeous wood carved santas...you know what I'm talking about? A friend gave me one for Christmas several years ago and it is one of my most treasured Christmas decorations! Ok...enough babble, on to the card! Hee!
I started by embossing the Antique Santa image onto watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink and Clear Detail embossing powder. I then watercolored it in using my Tombow markers. After the image was completely dry, I used one of my Label Eight Nestabilities dies to cut out/emboss the main image. I mounted it on some Webster's Pages Christmas paper. For embellishments, I added some Stickles, ribbon with decorative pin, buttons, stitching, & a punched border.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your day! ~Laurie
