Santa's Flight 5

It was time for me to color this stamp with copics, but since the figures are so tiny, it didn't really matter.

The large gold background piece is really just a scrap sheet of newspaper that was used when my daughter was spray-painting something.  It had a naturally distressed/grungy look to it that spoke to me.  However, it wouldn't glue down nicely - it wanted to warp, and the edges kept curling up.  I sewed it in place out of necessity, but I love how it looks and how it adds texture to an otherwise flat card.

The pattern paper was a scrap left over from a different project, and the kraft card base was from a stack of kraft bases my buddy Diane gave me.   Finally, I stamped the sentiment where I did to disguise the smeared ink. It is really very grungy in every way, but I like it!
