Santa's On His Way!!!

It's Tuesday which means it's time for me to post my next creation for One Crazy Stamper - and the theme for this months challenge is Winter/Christmas.  One Crazy Stamper recently added the wonderful line of Impression Obsession stamps to their great selection of stamps, and I love these stamps, so for my card I choose to feature "Santa's Bridge".

The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Versa Fine Black Onyx ink, then colored with Distress Inks refills and an aqua brush.  When I teach painting with distress inks I have always used a palette I made up, with all 36 colors of distress inks listed and a sheet of acrylic, but now you can purchase Tim Holtz's Palette, and it has a hinged lid ( really great to use and store your drops of ink, and the bonus is your cats can't walk through the inks anymore!!! ).
The beautiful dp is from Bo Bunny's Father Christmas 6 x 6 collection, holly die is from Memory Box, and the felt accents were in my stash. You have until the end of the month to enter the OCS challenge to win a great prize.  All items in red are available at OCS, or shop at their online store.
