Wishing You Peace and Joy

I have two Christmas cards to share today.

I created my positive and negative backgrounds using Tim Holtz Cracked Embossing Folder.  I sponged Antarctic Fresco Finish Chalk Paint over one side of the inside of my embossing folder, spritzed heavily with water and pressed a panel of watercolor paper into it and rubbed over it for a minute or two to be sure the watery ink absorbed into the paper.  I removed the panel and washed the EF.  I used the same technique on the other side of the EF.  

I thought the light blue paint made a rather artistic snowy background for my stamping of Tim Holtz Scribble Woodland stamps.

I'm linking my cards to:

This embossing folder made beautiful stamped backgrounds, Julia. The colour is just perfect and the stamped image over top looks amazing in the same shades of blue. A very elegant and beautiful set of cards. xx

Love your choice of colour of the acrylic paint for the wonderful background with the embossing folder technique and loving the stamping in the blue with that fabulous stamp x. Fabulous cards, both of them x.
