For my card this year I chose 'Soot Stamping'.
This is fun to do - just careful you don't start your paper on fire !!! Using glossy paper - hold it over a candle flame to soot up your card. Then use the stamp of your choice - press on, pull off - and there is the image.
Have to be careful not to smudge . After I have my images on then I spray, actually, with my aerosol hairspray - as I don't have any other sealer - works just fine.
The bird stamp is from Lost Coast Designs.
They saying is from Elusive Images.
