The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Hel's Sunday Stamper challenge for this and next week - is "Believe" - to use the word believe and stamping, in a project. I had a Santa background prepared but it was very similar to Hel's own entry, so have done another one with scattered straw and dusty concord distress, then used "wine and roses" glimmer mist which I toned down with "marshmallow". I stamped "believe" from the Tim Holtz Mini Holidays set (where Santa comes from too) on a piece of metal I had left over from my Day 10 tag and decorated it with a couple of Ten Second Studio wheels. The "Christmas Carols" from the same Tim stamp set was stamped on a piece of music background paper and spritzed with various perfect pearl/reinker mixes.
Finally, because Santa wasn't looking very Christmassy, I added some fired brick distress ink round his edges, and a green gel pen on his holly leaves on his hat, which I've covered in rock candy distress stickles., as I don't have a green distress stickles.
There is some great blog candy to one lucky entrant to this challenge - so go take a look!
