Some Christmas Polkadoodles Inspiration

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well and had a lovely week.

Today I am popping in to share an inspirational Christmas card for Polkadoodles.

This is one of the brand new delicious Christmas stamps, isn't it gorgeous? This stamp is available in your favourite crafts stores, but will be available in the Polkadoodles shop very soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

The links to the Polkadoodles products are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

I stamped the image with a Stazon Timber Brown ink pad onto water colour card and cut the square out with Posydoodles square die. 

The image has been coloured with distress re-inkers which is my favourite medium to use. Around the outside of the image I've sprinkled some pink frantage and also added in a little white.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain

The beautiful papers are from the Peeling Paint paper pad which I've edged with white gesso.

I love these spruce dies, they cut so beautifully. I've sprinkled on some Twinklets to give them a lovely icy look.

To create the silver text, I used some silver embossing powder. The sentiment comes with the stamp and I've used some coorindating paper and again edged it with white gesso. The shape of it was cut from one of the tags from the Posydoodles Tags die.

The pretty lacy poinsettia, has been cut in white card and once again covered in Twinklets.
