Masculine crimbo card

Good morning Lovelies! Another wet and cold day! :(
I hope everyone ok and free from floods etc?
I made this card a couple of nights ago, using Visible image stamps, DI and Frantage embossing enamels, just loving that stuff at the moment! Gives a great effect to grungy and Vintagey things. The backing paper is from a 6x6 pad I got last year, sorry I can't remember who it's by but it's very Vintagey, the backing paper I inked with vintage photo DI and stamped the grunge flourish with mahogany DI, added some splats with DS and blobed on some versamark in two of the corners and heated some Frantage from underneath, I stamped craft card with harlequin background stamp using tarnished brass Distress stain, the next layer I used the mahogany DI and the plaid background stamp and lightly inked with mahogany, the image is the wonderful vintage Santa, again stamped with mahogany DI I blobed on some versamark here and there over his beard and then added shabby white Frantage and heated from underneath to create this lovely textured beard! Thank you for taking the time to visit, I know this card won't be to everyone's taste? But I do love to experiment ;) xxx I'm entering this card into the lovely Linda Simpsons challenge! http://lindasimpsoncraftypieceofheaven.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/christmas-challenge-sponsored-by-my.html
