Xmas Crafts

I have a Christmas card to share today featuring another stamp that I picked up in a charity shop last's called 'Xmas Crafts' by Penny Black. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, and paired it with some glittery papers from the 'Recollections - Simply Stated' pad by Michaels (found at TK Maxx). I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs dies, and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.
