I was looking for a challenge yesterday to play along with and thought I hadn't visited the CASE-study challenge for a while! There was a beautiful card by Nicki Estes there to greet me, so I took the fabulous sketch and created another Christmas card using our new set Ornamental Christmas once again :
I started by creating my large background, distressing with Shabby Shutters and stamping with Peeled Paint. This stamp is another of our upcoming backgrounds, and I know I shouldn't use them but if they're sitting on your desk what's a girl to do...
The next panel has been distressed with Antique Linen and stamped with our music notes. I used both Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender to ink it so I had a variance in colour.
All new to the shop today is Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots. I read about these on a few of the 'big' bloggers sites and did a little research only to find that this product is made in Australia! I just thought that was so fantastic I had to give it a go!! The dimensional liquid dries clear so you don't get that white showing.
The ribbon is a piece of seam binding the lovely Sue W sent me and I coloured it by (very quickly) running Walnut Stain - Distress Stain over it.
Thanks for stopping by today, I always appreciate your comments :)
Hugs for now,
