Black and White Christmas...........

.................using the fabulous new Christmas Set from Indigo Blu, Here Comes Santa for my DT piece for The Stamp Attic.
Wendy sent me a little wooden arch (ICON) to decorate which I thought would be perfect for my non traditional Christmas card. I painted the wood with a coat of Gesso and then two coats of Black acrylic paint (the black Paint Dabber is perfect for this). I said last time that I would be using this sentiment many times and here it is once again on the front of my arch, stamped in StazOn Stone Gray. How do you like my zipper floral? Wendy has zipper in the shop, perfect for these flowers (they would be great for a steampunk creation, something on my to-do list!); and the white zipper is perfect for colouring with your Distress Stains. The edges of my arch have been coloured with white embossing powder. The edges needed something and the embossing powder worked perfectly to add a little interest to the black background.
In the centre I have stamped the fabulous tree from the Here Comes Santa set, in stone gray ink onto white card, cut out each one and added to the panels. I have added JOY and NOEL to Jump Rings and added the Merry Christmas sentiment.
This set also comes with a fabulous snowflake stamp which I have stamped onto circles and added to the back cover.  Once again I have added Merry Christmas and SNOW to jump rings to complete my piece.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x (
