I tried using old book paper as a background for the stamps here. I painted some white gesso over the old book paper to tone it down so that the stamped images can stand out more. once the white gesso is dried, i stamped the christmas tree in different shades of green, added stars and ribbons on the tree and some presents under them. To finish off, i stamped joy as the greeting, added some gold paint spatters and red sequins. this is such a fun card to make!
