Christmas Past .... By Gillian Simson

Using the inspiration from one of my favourite vintage Christmas Stamp Sets by Tim Holtz, I started out by covering this Wooden Door Sign in Distress Stain (Weathered Wood), then added a layer of stripes with Distress Stain (Picket Fence), once dry I then added a further layer of Distress Stain (Faded Jeans) then wiping over with a baby wipe to give a more soft/blended feel to the sign. I stamped the background text in Archival Ink (Manganese Blue), I then stamped the Father Christmas Image, the Snowflake Image and Merry Kiss-Mas quote designed by Jo Capper-Sandon for Stampotique in Distress Ink (Chipped Saphire). I then added Picket Fence Distress Stickles for a frosted/snowy look.
