Another Christmas Card

Sometimes I love to pull out an old stamp and use in a way that I have not used before. I used this stamp  with emboss resist and colored with distress inks to create a new look in this Christmas card. I think it has a stained glass look.  I have added a lot of color after I stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gold EP.  I colored with 4 distress inks by using sponging and watercolor techniques. I love the look of matting on the gingham DP.
