Kadoodle - Country Pub


Hi everyone, hope you're all well and also I hope you can excuse my lack of blog hopping lately, I hope to catch up as soon as I can. This is another of my new Kadoodle stamps, 'Country Pub' which is available at The Craft Barn shop and will soon be available online too. I've coloured it with Copic markers and added lots of glamour dust for a nice wintery effect. I made the background paper using my new holly stamp design from the 'Joie de noel' set also from The Craft Barn. To make the paper I inked up the stamp with pine needle and peeled paint distress ink so that there was some of each colour around the stamp and then stamped randomly onto white card. I then overstamped with some metallic gold ink, distressed and sponged the edges. The card blank and matting layer are gold metallic card and I've finished off with a wide green satin ribbon. TFL.
