I am truly "Merry Merry" as I am honored to Guest Design with the wonderful Merry Monday team today. Random drawings are fun to win, but it's such a thrill when your creation is chosen by fellow cardmakers.
This was indeed a challenge for me as I found only one stamp in my huge Christmas collection that included a vehicle. This cute image from Penny Black's marzipan greetings had never been inked. Being so not good at coloring, I decided to stamp it on a watercolored background using Distress Inks salty ocean, dusty concord & brushed corduroy. Usually you see this technique with something like a beautiful flower, but I think it works for a scene, too.
It has more interest in real life as the panel is sprayed with Glimmer Mist giving a wonderful sparkle & I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the pompom. The sentiment is from the same set & I added a bit of the blue watercoloring--not sure why it doesn't look like the same color in the picture.
The stitching is from Lil' Inkers dies & the panel & sentiment flag are mounted with foam tape. Hope I've inspired you to play along this week.
I'm entering Darnell's NBUS challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by.
