This week we are having a play on words courtesy of Sam Crowe, Sam is always making up little ditty's and poems so she suggested the theme for this week instead of Mistletoe and Wine we are playing Mistletoe and Rhyme.
So its only right that we showcase Sam first this week, you will all agree she has done an amazing job, over to you Sam.............
Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
X-cut Die - Oval
Pro-markers - Poppy & Caramel
Antiquing - Ink the edges of the oval using the SplodgeAway Mat and the Distress Ink - I normally use a few inks but once the Flitter Flakes are on it adds to the antique look so I liked it as it was. Also ink the main card measuring up to the Red piece of paper in the middle. I hold everything in place till I feel it is right then stick everything down. All layers are flat except the fireplace which was added with sponge tape.
Stamps - all but the mistletoe stamps were applied Before any inking was done. The mouse and fireplace were coloured in with Pro-markers.
So Once you have done the Reindeer, fireplace, centrepiece inking and put everything together, then go ahead and stamp the mistletoe over the card and the centre paper again using the Fitter glue and flakes.
And there you have it. Everything on the card was just meant to make it look christmassy to go with the Rhyme - So here it is, don't hold your breath:-
Twos the night before Xmas and all through the house,
was a feeling of excitement AND a little brown mouse,
the children's stockings looked a lot like tights?
Santa's Big Feet walking about on the roof,
Dancer and Prancer were tapping their Hoof,
Down from the chimney came a Big Red Butt,
and the mouse waited patiently with his Little Brown Smile!!
