Saturday Stamper - Winter

Not one of my best efforts. I struggled to come up with something for this challenge. Well that's not strictly true. I couldn't think of anything original & spent most of the day watching movies & letting thoughts whizz thru' my head! I had made this alcohol inked background a few days ago as I treated myself to the mixatives, Silver & Gold & wanted to play with them. I used denim, stream & something else but I can't remember, possibly slate!. It hasn't come out very glossy, my card is not the proper stuff for AI's. I stamped the tree, santa & his sleigh & the words in Rangers Jet black Archival pad. I drew the fence with a permanent brushmarker. I liked the idea of a starry night as most of the things I do are "daytime" themes.
Several people have nominated me for the smile award. I feel honoured but again, so many people have this. The people I would award it to already have it!
Everyone crazy enough to be crafty deserves it.

Hey, Paula dear. Wow. I don't know why you wouldn't be happy with this, since it captures perfectly the Northern Lights. =)
