ATSM#122 Classic Christmas

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


Time for another Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge...and this week it's time for our Make Your Mark challenge.  Using pencils, markers, whathaveyou for coloring your card works perfectly for this challenge!

Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps:


And, up for grabs are three digis...free is good right?  Why don't you play along?

A simple design today, just some heat embossing in gold, followed by scribbling a little color from various Distress Markers throughout the wreath image.  I used watercolor paper, so that I could easily blend the colors with a bit of water on a small paint brush.  Then some Stickles were added to the bells, and a simple heat embossed sentiment on vellum finishes the card.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU!  Soft Suede, vellum and Ranger Watercolor
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  JustRite Christmas Wreath
All the other stuff:  Hero Arts gold embossing powder; Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Pine Needles, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Markers; heat gun; embossing buddy; Diamond Stickles

Challenges entered:
Festive Friday #44

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
