Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

With this card I'm entering Virginia's Wiew Challenge #18 (the theme is geometric/patterns) and A Blog Named Hero's challenge (the theme is happy).
I've used triangels to form Christmas trees. I used black StazOn on the outlined stamp and clear EP on the solid stamp to emphase the triangular shape. I blended in the distress colors and made some splashes with water. I really like this card, it was a fairly quick Christmas card to make!

Everything with this card makes me happy! I'm happy to make use of stamps in ways they might not have been ment to, I'm happy about this resist technique which I love, I'm happy about the distress colors (love, love, love!), I'm happy for the Christmas season coming up soon and I'm happy because I've made four Christmas Cards already! ;-)
