Christmas Cheer

6 year anniversary giveaway can be found

I really like the way today's card. The stamp is an old one by PSX. I don't know much about that company other then I have inherited a lot of their stamps. My husband's uncle's friend's mother (did you follow that?) had to be put into a home due to Alzheimer's and I inherited her Christmas stamps, punches and just stuff. I would say it amounted to 100+ wooden stamps and a dozen punches to name a few things. Some of the stamps are brand new, never been inked before.

So anyway back to my card. I stamped the basket onto watercolor paper by Strathmore and colored it in with distress inks mixed with water and a paint brush. I don't know the names for the papers but the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp with red ink by Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking.
