Celebrate!

It's time for our last challenge of the year at Fashionable Stamping and this time it was my turn to choose the theme and I chose Celebrate which gives you lots of scope - Christmas, New Year, Birthdays.  There's lots of other reasons too, it's up to you as long as the stamping fits the theme.

I've used the Tim Holtz Plaid stamp for my background and inked with Aged Mahogany.  I've used one of my favourite Santa images, stamping with Potting Soil ink and coloured with Distress inks.  I've added some festive greenery, again coloured with DIs.

The rest of the team have some great inspiration, so please pop over to the blog, where you will also find all the details, along with information about our sponsor Ink Art Designs.

Thanks for calling in, I do appreciate it especially as everyone is so busy at this time of the year.
Have a great day,
Avril xx

Hi Avril, thanks for the great theme at FSC plus your inspirational piece is gorgeous. Santa looks so traditional and the tartan background with the holly makes him pop off the page.

Avril, this is stunning! I love the rustic feel to this, and your plaid is GORGEOUS! I can see why that Santa image is one of your favorites--such a classic! And I love how you've colored him. Your greenery is a beautiful finishing touch! Hugs and Merry Christmas!
