A Christmas Easel Card Coloured with Distress Re-inkers

Good morning Polkadoodles fans, it's Gina here popping in to share another of the beautiful new clear Winnie stamps from the stunning Winnie Christmas Wishes release.

This fabulous set comprises of 6 clear stamps, paper packs, topper packs and lots more!! 

They are available from your favourite craft stores, but keep your eyes peeled as they will be shortly available in the Polkadoodles shop.

I have gone right out of my comfort zone with the colours for this card. I was inspired by a picture I recently saw and loved it so gave it a go.

I love painting so have used distress re-inkers to colour the stamp. I blended two colours together on the umbrella to create a different effect. Listed below are the colours I used.

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Black Soot
Coat and Boots: Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot
Umbrella: Hickory Smoke, Brushed Corduroy
Snow People: Hickory Smoke, Worn Lipstick, Ripe Persimmon, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Black Soot
Reindeer: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot

in love with AUTUMN 6 x 6" paper pack

The gorgeous mustard papers are from the 'In Love with Autumn' paper pad, it just goes to show how versatile they are.

The Glorious Border die has been cut on a thick card and cuts beautifully. To give it that Christmas look I have covered it in glue and sprinkled  Twinklets on it which gives it a gorgeous icy look.

The sentiment comes with the stamp. I have cut two of the Posydoodles tag dies and stamped it with a Versamark stamp pad, sprinkled on some gold embossing powder and used a heat gun to set it.

I hope you like my little bit of inspiration.

Happy crafting:)
