I stamped the image in Momento black ink, coloured it all over with N0 Copic, coloured the image with Copics and used Spica gold on his glasses. Then, I added Tea Dye distress ink all over the front of the card, cut it to size and layered it on dark green and red cardstock. The background piece is also coloured with the distress ink. My four of a kind were the brads.

I stumbled upon a new challenge at splitcoaststampers.com. The challenge is to use four of something on your card, and you had to use Flourishes stamps. I have only one set of Christmas stamps, and several non-Christmas. I love, love, love this set, and have used it many times.

It's been a while since my last post- husband retired from the military last month, and to celebrate, we went on a Caribbean cruise. It was heavenly, and I would go back in a heartbeat.
I made these cards a while ago. It was a technique I saw somewhere (can't remember where now) and really liked it. I got some patterned paper on sale, and the vellum overlay really toned it down.
The stamp sentiment is Tim Holtz.
For this one, I ran the vellum through the cuttlebug and the through the zyron to make it stick to the card face.
