What is Red & White & Black ALL over? 34

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 9, 2009 @ 1:50 AM | , , , ,

Hi Ladies! My Christmas Card! Yep that's right! When I first saw these Fun, Bright, Bold colors for this week's Creativity Challenge #3, PDCC03, hosted by Alison at The Play Date Cafe, I thought what the heck am I going to make with these? With Christmas on my mind, Snowmen, Penguins & Santa Claus were the first images that popped in my head then I thought oooo, how about a bright red vintagey Ornament?! I combined these Fun colors with Mercy's awesome sketch from this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #46, MTSC46. If you haven't already, I recommend that you visit these two sites & view the eye candy that the DT's have created & browse the galleries to see what others have made to play along! :) Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Here's my Merry Christmas card:

Using a sponge dauber inked up with Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique photo ink, I smudged the edges to give the card an overall Vintagey look as well as the snowflakes & the tag.
To give the snowflakes dimension, I layered them x 2 & "fluffed" them up bit then put a Making Memories red crystal brad in the center. Using the Cuttlebug Snowflake EF, I gave the white oval some dimension.
Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Vintage Ornaments, SU Fancy Flexible Sayings, Rubber Stampede Music Background Paper: SU Basic Black, Whisper White, PTI Pure Poppy Ink: SU Basic Black, Real Red, Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique Photo Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals & Oval dies, Martha Stewart Snowflake punches x 2, Sizzix Oval die, Offray ribbon, Making Memories crystal brads, SU silver cord, Cuttlebug Snowflake EF, buttons from stash
