Only 17 More Sleeps....

...till Christmas!!
I've been having another attempt at tartan with my Moonshadow inks, this time using shades of blue and purple together with Long John Silver lol. (I just love this name)
It's really hard to take a photograph because of the lovely gleam. I put some of the Long John Silver in a mister, and sprayed through a Dylusion stencil, then went over the top of it with some ferro.

Now it was time for the bling! Tim Holtz snowflakes stamped and embossed with Frantage embossing powders, enamels and glass glitter.
The Tim Holtz blueprint santa was stamped directly onto the card, and the snowflake brad was given the Frantage treatment.
The Moonshadow inks and everything Frantage can be found at The Stamp Man.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
