Merry Christmas 44

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 7, 2014 @ 10:01 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: Transportation and was chosen by team member Anna-Karin.
I love anything vintage and shabby so I gave a plain black metal decorative truck a new Patina like paint job using various Distress Paints.
For a touch more vintage vibe, I randomly applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Since I'm in the holiday spirit, I embellished the truck with a few Christmas Remnant Rubs:
Woodland Tree and Wreath:
more remnant rubs:
a postage stamp banner:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope I have inspired you to give it a try and join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
