An Oldie but Goodie

I made this Christmas card today to share with my Sisters in Stamping group. The Train Collage stamp and paper behind the image are from The Angel Company, which is no longer in business. The inks used were Fun Stampers Journey Black Licorice, embossed with clear powder, and then sponged with Distress Inks( antique linen, tattered rose, and vintage photo). Lastly I used Copic markers(G19 and R27) to color the leaves and berries. The image was trimmed with deckle scissors before mounting on fun foam to add dimension. I stamped the sentiment(from the SU Joyful Christmas set) with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, punched it out with my Marvy scalloped oval, and sponged more of the victorian velvet around the edge.
