Three times a charm today, as we are visiting three challenges. Vicki at the Cheerful Stamp Pad has us "Decking the Halls" and I think the ribbon trim, the Gingerbread Boy and the hanging bells fall right into that category. At Gingersnap Creations, we are playing with vintage hues and I think we have used more or less vintage Christmas colors. Last and certainly not least is the weekly challenge at Studio L3 and we are "double distressing." Nothing is more fun than playing with distress inks and grunge paper! Linda has taken us on 23 weeks of adventure and fun! Hard to believe we are almost through the book!
The sentiment and Gingerbread Boy are from Scrolls Work Stamps. I colored grunge paper to give off a gingerbread color, then white embossed, cut him out and added some Holly stickles for trim. Merry Christmas was also embossed and cut with deckled scissors and shaded. The background is of course from Tim Holtz texture fades and was double distressed.
Well over the long Thanksgiving weekend, my DH insisted I get a new computer and I am working back and forth between the 10 year old bomb and the new headache. Most is ok with the new addition, but the font style and size are off. With time this shall be conquered - I hope! So what did all of you do in the states or not in the states? Hope whatever it was, it was wonderful!
Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. It is taking me a little longer to go through e-mails and blogs with the Thanksgiving weekend and the new toy, but I am trying to visit as quickly as possible. Have a great day!
