A Christmas Tag

Hello to you all,my share today is a Tag using a Penny Black stamp from the Holly Jolly transparent set. I saw Sheena Douglas doing this technique on TV this morning and thought I must try it......Basically you  stamp your image on your card then add distress inks to the rest of the card in whatever colours you fancy,I used pine needles-broken china and tumbled glass.You don't have to worry about getting it on your image because that's where the magic happens......just get a brush and some water and take off the ink where you don't  want it. I have also added a bit of glitter as well.I hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning and leaving such a sweet comment. How kind of you, Doreen! I always enjoy making new bloggy friends, and hope you will consider stopping back and becoming a "new follower" on my blog. I would really love to do the same here (if you don't mind). I love what I'm seeing here. I love the Nicecrane post below this one, and so many great cards to see. Thanks again for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon.

This is gorgeous Doreen and a great technique. I think some one else has asked the same. Did you colour the image first before doing the distress inks? Also did you colour with Promarkers?
