Winter Wonderland .... Give it a Vintage look.

Hi everyone!

It's Friday again which means another Winter Wonderland challenge.  The lovely Janet is host this week with the theme 'Give it a Vintage Look'.  Oh, I love it .... a wonderful opportunity to get out my distressing inks and tool.  And I treated myself to some of the Tim Holtz's christmas stamps! 

I stamped this image with Rich Cocoa and distressed all the edges and added some Tea Dye ink to enhance the distressing.  The paper is Graphic 45 which I absolutely adore - wow, they do such an amazing range of vintage papers don't they!  The pearly snowflakes are a recent purchase from a local craft store and I just couldn't resist them (oh boy, that seems to happen a lot!).  The 'flower' was a strip of cardstock which I distressed then spritzed with water and just twisted round into a circle.  I flattened it out and glued it together and added a pearl for the center - an easy handmade distressed flower!  Lace & pearls are from my stash.  The ticket is also Tim Holtz.

Terri's Delicious Doodles is sponsoring another fabulous prize for this weeks challenge.  I hope you're able to join in and add another Christmas card to your growing pile!!  These weeks sure are counting down fast!

Thanks for stopping in again today - I truly appreciate your visits and comments!  I have a busy weekend coming up with the family including zip lining tomorrow and a crafty card-making day all day Sunday with my mom!!

I'll be back later to post more details about PaperWorksCo new RAM stamp release party tonight ... CAN'T WAIT!!!

Hugs,
Danielle x
