Skating to the ½ way point…

ABC Christmas Challenge reminder – finishes 22nd Nov
I LOVE Henry from Whiff of joy and have made myself a little promise to start using my rubber stamps more.
So today I am sharing this card with you and I have used this lovely Henry Skating.
The background papers are from deep in my stash I can not remember where from they are that old I jazzed them up but stamping some snowflakes on in versamark and heat embossing them, Henry as I mentioned has been in my draw a long time so I have giving him some love, he so darn cute.
punched some Kraft and also die cut the Marianne die then added some vintage photo distress ink to them and the wooden button and the sentiment, the Large blue snowflake is also wooden but I have painted that with acrylic paint and then added distress crackle, (note to self need to play more with the crackle).
Henry is coloured with distress inks and I have added glue and glamour to his hat and skates and also the ground. a little touch of white gel pen, some twine and a large helping of stickles Smile
