I Warned You!

Evening all!  Well, I did warn you that you might be seeing this stamp more than once this Christmas so here it is again!

This time I stamped the Wild Rose Studio Baby Jesus onto Bristol Board, and then again onto Eclipse Masking Tape.  I carefully cut out and applied the mask, and stamped over it using the Personal Impressions Christmas Story script stamp in Memento Rich Cocoa, then distressed the Board with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then again round the edges with Frayed Burlap.

After removing the mask I then painted the image with Distress Inks (ReInkers), layered onto a piece of darker card and applied to the white card base.


It was simple enough to do, if somewhat time consuming, but I am really pleased with the result - might do some more of these now that I have the mask made.

Hugs, Sxx
