Crafts4Eternity recipe #11


Good morning everyone, up to find a thick cold mist this morning! Over at Crafts4Eternity we are being encouraged to use our old neglected stamps for the recipe this week, which I think is a very good idea, you know we all have those stamps, some not even inked that we bought so long ago. So join in this week and show us what you've been neglecting. And up for grabs are two of the cutest little character by our very own Michele. The recipe this week is
FOLLOW THE SKETCH
Use RED AND GREEN
Use AN OLD STAMP ( at least a year old)
for my card I used an old stamp from Anita's, weren't they always the first stamps we bought lol. This is a nice one and it does get pulled out every Christmas but this time I stamped it onto watercolour paper and it didn't come out as black as it should have and I came up with the idea to fill it in with distress inks to add colour instead of leaving it black and white. I like the finished effect. I added some sticky lace, ribbon, gold mirri and a few text circles. The papers are all HotofthePress. Hope you get time to join in this week and don't forget to check out those lovely digis and the other DT inspiration.
I am entering this in a few challenges:
2. Winter Wonderland - Nativity
3. Our creative corner - Holiday theme
