This weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is for distressed and sanded.  Hmmm - me had to think a bit on the sanded part.  I don't do a lot of sanding although I do have Tim's sander.  This is my fabulous new stamp set I purchased last weekend by Tim Holtz.  I'm in the mood for Christmas - okay okay, well at least I haven't started as early as Hobby Lobby - tee hee - they have Christmas trees out in July.  I just couldn't wait to use this set.  I took at class at Archivers a couple weeks ago and we used this stamp and I just fell in love with it. How many more Santas can one person have I ask?  Anywho, after distressing  the edges along with Vintage Photo distress ink, I colored a bit with my prisma pens the suit since I wanted it to stand out more.  Then I went back and sponged over it with vintage photo to tone it down.  I sanded the fragment for the frosted look and stamped a tiny sprig of evergreen to the back.  I love my fragments. Used a little twine and stamped a ticket, added some red berry bling and voila.  You rock my world Santa.
