Just Us Girls #214 Technique Challenge

I got to use my new single word stamp from Simon Says, on this challenge. As the technique is simple,we were to use words as a background. so I arranged the words from Holiday Hellos stamp set, and then I stamped them onto kraft CS. I sponged it with tea dye and vintage photo distressed inks, and I also sponged the dotted swiss paper that I used on the left. The little guy is a digi, that was free. He is colored with some of the watercolor crayons that I have had, and never used until now. He is sitting on a embossed brick wall. Lastly, I made my own embellishment with a stamped star and then added bakers twine and a rhinestone. The evergreens are a snowflake punch that I separated and pasted on individually. Of course, I added glitter. That little guy looks mischievous. I wonder what he is thinking?

I am entering this card in the JUGS #214 challenge this week.

  5. Well, if he's sitting on the edge of a fireplace chimney, my guess is he's thinking "I wonder how Santa does this"! And yes, that could be considered mischievous I think. What a wonderful card and I love your stamped background paper, it really sets this card off beautifully. Love the colors and color tones in this card too. Good job!
