The Card Concept #63

I recently got this PB stamp that I thought was perfect for the challenge at The Card Concept.

Jill Foster has some terrific videos over at Penny Black and I tried to emulate her in stamping the cones and berries.  It's easy to do with the MISTI but I did find I may need to invest in some different markers.  I tried it first with some old Marvy Markers and the image was okay but I lacked enough colors to do much shading.  For this card I used my Zigs, coloring on the stamp and spritzing the first time, then coloring and stamping again and again until I had what I wanted.  I cut some squares of woodgrain pp and mounted the Memory Box letters after inking around the edges. At the last minute I decided to add some spatters.  Here's their photo.  I think you can see what inspired me.
I have a few other new stamps that I'm anxious to try out.  If the weather forecast holds true, I may be hibernating and crafting my little heart out.


ETA:  I keep forgetting about Kylie's 12 Days of Christmas.  I'm going to send my card over there too.
