A Vintage Christmas

Thursday, December 5, 2013

Happy Thursday!  Central North Carolina seems to be in a bubble right now, as far as the weather goes, today and tomorrow. It is very warm and mild, not at all like much of the midwest to northeast is experiencing.  I hope everyone affected by current winter storms are staying safe and warm!  
The mountaineer girl in me wishes we would get even just a little bit of the snow.  But for now, I will have to settle for looking at my latest card here:




SPIES:
STAMPS: Image (Stampendous).
PAPER: Grey cardstock.
INK:Vintage Sepia (Versafine); Grayish Olive (Copics).
EXTRAS: Xmas Red Stickles. Snow White Dimensional Effect (DecoArt).


It's rare that the Hubs makes a suggestion on my stamp purchases but when he saw this holiday postcard stamp he bought it for me!  I'm so glad he did!  I love how this came out!

I bought the dimensional snow last year and hardly used it.  So I tried it on this card and love it.  It took me a bit to work it how I wanted.  It comes out somewhat fluffy but also wet. I applied it by using the tip like a pencil and then my finger to smear it around a bit.

It fits very well with the challenges at Just Us Girls , Papercraft Star and Sugar Creek Hollow.

FOR THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES










Vintage Christmas Blessings!

I find q-tips work really well for adding the snowy stuff - and then you can just toss them, even better :) Or a paintbrush - but it dries like cement!
Love that your hubs picked this one out for you - it's gorgeous!
