While making a card for my friend Leslie's Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge, I managed to incorporate two other challenges as well! And even get a Christmas card done:
I turned Leslie's sketch 90°counterclockwise. I used a couple of post-it notes as a mask to sponge the sky, and then the same to lightly sponge a couple of drifts in the snow. The snowman is embossed and coloured with distress inks and markers. There are black Enamel Accents on his buttons and red Liquid Pearls on the holly berries. I curled the sentiment just a bit on the acrylic block before stamping and embossing it. A fairly simple card, but I think it's kind of cute!
And although it wasn't my intention going in, I realized as I was making this that all my supplies are well over a year old (seriously, I even reused the post-it mask from earlier years of Christmas cards!) so this qualifies for the current Shopping Our Stash/Jingle Belles bonus challenge. And with all Paper Smooches stamps, this qualifies for this week's Anything Goes challenge. (Wait! If I'm entering a combined challenge, is this really a four-fer? Whatever. :D)
Supplies: white & American Crafts textured blue cardstock, Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamps, Versafine onyx black & broken china, mowed lawn & festive berries distress inks, Zing clear embossing powder, distress markers, black enamel accents, ruby red Liquid Pearls, pop-dot tape
