This week's inspirational tag can be seen here
I loved the red and green colours Linda used and also the watery stencilled background. I was also inspired by the Father Christmas stamp as I own a similar one. I think this card has a really retro feel to it so I wanted to try to capture this in my creation.
Off I went down to my garden studio after work and the first thing I made was a stencilled background. I used Kraft card stock to add to the retro feel. I used my TH stars stencil for this with Festive Berries Distress ink.
Next I made some more backgrounds to use for tags and the background of my sentiment which I also stencilled.
