Use Something New

Evening Everyone,
Well I made it through my very early start.
I could have done without the large moth that was fluttering around my window at 3.30 this morning. I hate moths, and I could hear this one but not see it !!!!!! I just hope that it has moved on and doesn't give a repeat performance lol
The challenge this week at Weekly Christmas Card challenges is for you to 'Use Something New'.
I don't think that they get any newer than this fabulous stamp from the latest Woodware catalogue. I think that this one has to be one of my favourites, for the moment at least :O)
I made the deep red background paper with Adirondack dye based inks and cling film.
The 25 has been painted with neat bleach to remove the colour, and I added some tiny white dots with a souffle pen.
There is also a little bit of paper piecing, so I will enter it into the latest challenge at the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.
I added some faux Card Candi made from the background paper.
The berries are peel-off dots which I coloured with a Promarker and then topped with a dot of Glossy Accents.
