I had a good stamping day today! Completed the cricut reindeer card this morning. Then after walking my dog this afternoon, I sat down with a cup of tea to read how to do Double Distressing in The Compendium of Curiosities, page 40. After thinking a bit, this is what I came up with. The second pic shows the detail on the stamp.
-Cardstock Stampin Up red; patterned plaid paper Basic Grey "Jovial"; scrap of brown and metallic music script. Red tag from Kaiser Craft "Tis the Season" pad.
-Tim Holtz Texture Fade "Bingo" double distressed with Fired Brick, Barn Red, and Crushed Olive inks.
-Santa Stamp is one of four of a set by Recollections "Christmas Collage". Red Glitter & Star Dust Stickles; gold & red liner pen on detail; Crystal Lacquer on hourglass; Santa hat metal brad and gold tiny brad.
-"Dear Santa" verse stamp by Studio G
I find that TH techniques tend to produce masculine looking cards, so I'm going to send this one to my 23 year old nephew.
