Woodware Design Team Challenge - Vintage Christmas

I'm leading the challenge this week... So I chose to use a Christmas bell for my vintage design. I have also done this bell in modern Christmas colours and it works equally well.

FRS101 Holly Bell

I stamped the bell using an ochre die based inkpad and before adding the other colours I bled out the ink with a water brush. This is what gives it a vintage look.

The greeting comes from this set:

FRCL171 All Through the Year

I used the same water colour technique over the stamped greeting.
I have gone over the outline with some diamond 'Stickles' and add some 3 mm and 5 mm red 'Nailheads' for berries.

Do check in over the coming week to see other ideas for 'Wintage Christmas' over on the Woodware Blog.


  1. Love your technique of watercolouring out the brown ink after stamping- it does looks very vintage. I like the way that you have smudged the edges too.
