Christmas Card

I haven't made many cards at all - so this is another experiment for a friend.

Once again - the scan doesn't seem to like the gold and has also missed some of the border out!

I painted some paper with inks - red, brown, and grey. Stamped on swirls. Added a collage of a Victorian Santa Clause which I have enhanced with inks.

Stamped Merry Christmas and embossed with gold with a bit of gold above him.

I edged it with a gold 'peel off' border

'In the hand' the card looks marbled with softer shades of colours and the stamped swirls are clearer!
