For week #9 I was inspired by the lovely deep green/burnished back ground she made, the foliage stamping, the red and white Baker's twine and the red stamped sentiment.
This is what I got up to.
I made an inky background using various Christmas green coloured distress paints.
I added a little water to get some distressed blending.
I then added silver metallic distress stain.
So here is my finished card.
