Hi Everyone..........................and a warm welcome to you all :-)
This fortnight at Craft Room Challenge the lovely Mervi is the challenge hostess and the theme is "Vintage Christmas......presents or cards"
Our sponsor is Rogue Redhead Designs, who make wonderful Vintage and Eclectic Stamps.
Below is my DT project, which definitely has a Vintage Shabby Chic Theme.
The background card is A4 and the stamped images are from Oxford Impressions 'Christmas Wish' Stamp Plate, which I won in a Giveaway from the very talented Lynne Moncrieff of Adorn. You can find Lynne's blog HERE and it is certainly worth visiting x.
The OI plate is full of wonderful Vintage Christmas Images, which stamp beautifully.
The drift wood was found during a beautiful summer walk on the South West Coast of Scotland and is attached with twine.
After blending the card with Vintage photo Distress Ink I used the masking technique, blended and water coloured the main focal images with Distress Inks and Distress Markers. I also added some Ranger Stickles in Rock Candy to create a crisp frosted effect around the feet of Santa and the children. The Spritz and Flick technique looks like snow is falling.
Above is a closer view of the top left corner, with a torn tag stamped with the sentiment.
Below is the lower left corner with the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die. Here I used felt, which was stamped with Archival ink and then aged with Vintage Photo DI. More Rock Candy Stickles were adhered to catch the light.
The double bow was made using some hand dyed cheesecloth and once again Rock Candy Stickles provided that lovely sparkle, which just sets this piece off..... sparkling in the lamplight.
I do hope you can join in with us over at Craft Room Challenge this fortnight. You can also view and be inspired by the fabulous makes of my very talented DT Roomies by clicking HERE
I would also like to enter this hanging in the following challenges:
Over at Simon Says Monday Challenge the Challenge Theme is Countdown to The Holidays. My Christmas Hanging with the number 25 included is certainly doing that :-)
At Fashionable Stamping Challenge the Theme is 'Shabby Chic Christmas'.
