Vintage Christmas, Part 1

I am inspired by the Merry Monday Challenge to make a vintage Christmas card.  I bought this stamp at Michaels a few years ago and was never satisfied with the results.  This time I am happier and the stamp can reside in my home for a while longer.
I stamped in Potting Soil Archival Ink.  The main image was watercolored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils which dry permanent.  I gave the entire image a wash with Distress Ink  (Antique Linen and Old Paper) to make it look older.  The edges were inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  It is mounted on cream color cardstock.

Stamp:  Stampendous Snow Postcard

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Nice! I have this stamp and have never colored in the images. Very pretty!

  2. Wow! The coloring on this image is fantastic and it is perfect for the Vintage theme- I say it should be a "keeper" now :-)

  3. What a gorgeous card! I love that stamp - so glad it gets a home a little while! :)

  4. Beautiful image! I love the subtle coloring on your card. Thanks so much for joining us at Merry Monday.

  5. Such a lovely card! I would definitely keep the stamp. Your coloring of the image is beautiful.
