GKD Blast From the Past Day 5

Time for another Blast From The Past, this time featuring stamp sets from Gina K and Tami Mayberry. I combined some of my favorite sets from both on one card, Winter Foliage by Gina and Special Delivery Additions from Tami.

For even more samples of some of our favorite 'Blast from the Past' GinaK Designs stamp sets, check out these participating designer's blogs:
Instead of our regular release party, we are having some special Blast From the Past Challenges and Contest Questions so be sure to check out the Release Party Forum at StampTV for all the fun!

To make my card, I sponged a piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

Sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Stamped the background stamp from Tami's Special Delivery Additions, using Memento Black.

Stamped the branch, from Gina's Winter Foliage, twice.

Stamped the cone, also from Winter Foliage.

Colored the pine needles, using YG95 Copic marker. I just made quick swipes with the marker, starting at the branch and swiping out.

Added YG99, but did shorter swipes, for shading closer to the branch.

Used E57 on the pine cone.

Added E59 for shading.

I used the snowflake, from Tami's Calendar Bits and Pieces, stamped with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from Gina's Holiday Greetings. I layered with Pure Luxury All Spruced Up and Soft Sand. The card base is Fresh Asparagus.

Thanks for the visit. I hope your day is fabulous!

Where do I find that background stamp? No links provided and I have now seen it on both your and A Walk On The Milder Side blog. I like it and would like to see about buying it, depending on price.
