Christmas Postcard.

Hello Everyone.
It is Magpie day at Country View Crafts......What is this you ask? Well it is a day where the Dt's have a set project to show, it has nothing to do with the current Challenge just an extra project for your enjoyment.
This time we have all made a Postcard, and mine is from Santa to Scarlett (Gd) sent from the North Pole acknowledging that she has been good all year and presents will be delivered on Christmas Day.

Here is  a step by step:
Swiped distress ink on mat and sprayed with water.
Swiped my card a couple of times through the Ink, drying after each pass.
Inked up a spellbinders frame in vintage photo and walnut stain.
Adding the stamps and drawing the lines.
Masking and more stamping.
Mask removed and Santa image stamped, painted and frame adhered.
More Stamping and rub-ons added.

Adding the stamp and highlights

The Back.
