I was thrilled to be asked to do a Guest Designer spot over at Crafts -Too Challenge You.
The challenge theme is 'Christmas Festivities' and the Twist this week is to Create a Scene.
It took me a while to think out what to do , but, I knew that this Crafty Individuals stamp was the one I would use. The Children watching out of the window, hoping to see Santa creates a scene in itself.
So for this card, I have kept to my love of all things vintage.
Using Embossalicious folders for the base card , one layer was distressed with the edge of a blunt pair of scissors.
A couple of Spellbinders Labels, then the fussy- cut C.I. image. I stamped this twice so I could add the children as an extra layer to give dimension. This image was water coloured.
The tree is an Indigo Blu stamp, embossed with a dark green powder, the baubles are coloured with a gold pen. All the extra shading on the card is Vintage Photo distress ink, my all time favorite colouring ink.
The ribbon and lace come from my stash.
I will also enter the new Crafty Individuals Challenge which is October.
There was a broad scope to this challenge and as you can see this card fits into preparing for Christmas
Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
