Friday Mashup 234 challenge Card

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!
