Catch the bug / anything goes Saturday /Snowy Greetings

Saturday November 2, 2013
 
Time for Anything goes at Catch the bug and it was time for me to get another Christmas card done. I tried a new technique for me using model paste and a stencil to make the background. I then kind of went over it with some ink to give some color to the stark white. Then added the image. I kind of like the look and it was fun to make.
