Happy Holidays to PaperArtsy

I was inspired to make this arch with a technique done by PaperArtsy designer Joanne Wardle.
I painted the gesso'd chipboard with a teal blue acrylic paint. Covered it with crackle glaze and let it dry overnight.  Then I painted with cream acrylic paint.  I got some awesome cracks!
 
Then I stamped the song stamp from Tim Holtz Christmas stamp set with brown Archival ink.
I used several colors of distress inks.
Stamped the sentiment with Black Stazon.
Stamped the pine with pigment ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
I stamped the Santa image on mixed media cardstock and colored with oil pastels.
I coated the white parts with snow writer.
 Added red and clear bling to finish it off.
Here's a close up showing the cracks.  Love it!

Just over to PaperArtsy to get some inspiration yourself!
