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.

This is my entry for Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. This week it's Grunge - grunge I can do. This card is actually cuter in person or at least I think so. I don't know if my camera needs new batteries or what but I couldn't get it to cooperate. Although it's pretty close because it is a dark grunged card. I had fun making this. I love halloween and I love making halloween cards. Don't know what I'll do with them because I never send out halloween cards but maybe I'll start. I used my spellbinders for the fence because I couldn't find my fence punch and I know I have one. That's a sign that I have too much stuff when you can't find what you know you have. tee hee. The church is from Delicious Doodles digis. The witch is a digi from Digital Pencil Too. Mo has some of the cutest digis. I used a Tim Holtz stamp for the bramble bush. The bats are just clipart. I did a lot of sponging on this one to make it dark and creepy and then distressed the edges. It is grundgy and spooky - watch out for hallows eve ! Someone has been bending the iron fence to get in - EEKS.
