TLT - Distressing or Non-Traditional Christmas Colors SUE Style

Hey, hey - what a great challenge this week; not only did Sue choose the challenge, but we're bringing you another Stamp of the Month - which means you can purchase this image for HALF-PRICE the entire month of November!

I decided to do non-traditional colors AND monochromatic; this is the first time I've truly applied myself to doing mono-chromatic and I like it. A very CAS (clean and simple) card with a bit of embossing, some ribbon, some coloring and of course some snow!

The original panel was white, but I gave it a beige tint using VersaMagic Wheat and then edged it with VersaMagic Sahara Sand - all my colors were chosen from the Copics E grouping.

Thanks for stopping by to visit, be sure you stop by the TLT Challenge Blog and join us; great prizes to be had and we LOVE seeing all your creativity!

And go ahead, check out the amazing images at Ladybug Crafts Ink and while there, toss this cute little Nikki in your shopping cart for HALF-PRICE!

I'm also entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes!

... building a snowman, always fun! ...


Hugs, ~M.
