I couldn't resist some of the Penny Black's newest release and this brushstroke stamp was one of them. This one is called Season's Tweeting.
To add some interest to the background I used an old Penny Black background stamp - Christmas Story (unfortunately it appears to be currently unavailable) - and stamped portions of it using Old Paper Distress ink, then flicked some diluted ink - faded jeans - onto the background.
The sentiment is from my favorite Christmas sentiment set by Penny Black - Season's Gifts, stamped using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Edges were distressed and inked with Old Paper ink, then I added some Natural Jute Twine to to finish the card front. As I'm trying once again to use more of my pattern papers, I decided to frame the card front with polka dotted paper from my stash.
