I managed to squeeze in a Friday Mashup card this week – joining in with my SIL Judy, though she got hers posted up well before me. There are several ways this challenge can be interpreted into our own creation – you truly should visit Friday Mashup to see some of the beautiful versions the design team has posted to give you a feel of how you might use this theme. I am using the “Winter Theme” choice for this challenge.
For myself, I decided to play with some distress inks. Distress inks are very new to me and I literally had to isolate myself to them mostly to get a feel with how they work. Here is what I made:
As you can see, I chose to go with the title as well as a palette of cool colors.
The finishing touch was a two layered punched snowflake.
Snowflake Punch – Martha Stewart
Stamp – Holiday Trendz
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Guache paint (for the snow flurry)
Today was the ideal day to post this card being as it’s a very gloomy, brrrrr day here – like this:
You know the sort of day – the kind of day you just want to snuggle your toes down into your nest and take a day out from the world. Fortunately for me I have an unexpected day off from work so I will take full advantage of this. Today is a day to take time out realize the blessings that surround me.
Thank you for taking time to stop in on me today!
