I started with 3 shades of blue: Sky, Crystal Blue and Twilight. I stamped the pads directly on my mat, sprayed them with some alcohol, swirled the colors together and dropped the Champagne CS on it. Then using the Twilight ink, I stamped the trees and house scened in the background.
I stamped the Post Card in Slate and the horse (an old stamp from who knows where?). Merry Christmas was stamped in Archival Black.
The swirl embossing was done with a Cuttlebug folder on Outdoor Denim CS. I then went over it in Slate.
Embellishments topped it off -- a little Victorian lace and pearls with some country burlap and a tulle bow.
You can find this amazing stamp over at KatiesCorner.
