I don't mean to rub it in (sorry Joy), but... I'm on holidays. Five blissful weeks of no work! Which hopefully means lots and lots of creating time, yay!
So to start of just right I made a card. I am loving Tim Holtz's 12 Days of Christmas Tags this year and decided to play with one of the techniques he used.
This is such a simple yet effective technique. I stamped my teddy bear image and then used distress inks to colour the white card stock. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Old Letter Writing on top, sprinkled with water drops and dried with my heat gun. Next I distressed the edges, added some ribbon, a cute little rattle from PTI and a tag with a rub on sentiment.
I am playing along with CASE Study Challenge #18, which was to case this card by Nina Brackett.
I hope all your Christmas preparations are coming along nicely and you are not too stressed. Have a fun weekend.
