Celtic Christmas Stamp Set

Hi Everyone it's Teresa here today to share one of my favorite cards i think i have done 
so far.  I love all things Celtic and have rich family history in it so i let my inspiration 
take flight and this is what i came up with.  It's super rich in color and has just enough 
gold to really set it off.

I wanted to use both stamps on the front so i cut a piece of card stock in the rich peacock 
color like the card base to fit both of them and then i used a really wrinkled up piece 
of tissue to decoupage over the front of it.  I let it dry really good and then i use foam 
daubers to apply 2 colors of aqua ink over the tissue. Then i stamped the image in black 
detail ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The black shows through just 
a little to give it a vintage look.  And just to add a little more age to it i used a 
Versafine pen around the edges and added more gold embossing powder.  You will 
need to adhere it really good to the paper with 3D foam squares to make it lay flat 
since it is so thick. The printed back round papers i used are from DCWV.

I hope you like it and if you have any questions be sure and leave a comment
and i will be happy to answer them ASAP.  Have a wonderful day!!

Here are the products i used from the Quietfire store:
