Santa's On His Way!!!

Welcome to another Tuesday at One Crazy Stamper and my card for this months challenge theme of Winter/Christmas. 
I was so happy when Lora started carrying the Impression Obsession Stamps at OCS as the detail in these stamps is absolutely amazing, and this image is no exception.  This is Santa's Bridge which I stamped on watercolor paper with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink, and then colored using a Pental Aquash Water Brush  and several colors of Tim Holtz's Distress Re-inkers.  You can use your Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads for this technique as well, by just pushing down on the center of the lid of your ink pad, and then using the droplets of color on the inside of the lid.  I have always used a palette that I created out of a list of the 36 colors of distress inks and a sheet of acrylic, and I have now added the new Tim Holtz Ink Palette to my collection, and I love the fact that you can just close the lid and save your colors for the next project ( see photo below ).

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!!!
Don't forget to enter the challenge for your chance to win!
