Thanks for all your lovely comments, they were very much appreciated.
Today’s project is all about going beyond the norm …
I wanted to make a non-traditional Christmas Card, and this is how it turned out:
Artsy Grungy, I suppose one could call it. Some masking and sponging plus the use of the Oh, Christmas Tree!, Holiday Artsy and Graphic Squares sets by STAMPlorations combined with the small stars stamp by Lavinia Stamps and some pinks and turquoise made for this unusual card. I think the splatters around the edge look a bit like pink icicles!
It is not my normal style, and I have been experimenting a bit of late trying to do a few different things like book and canvas projects. It is always good to stretch one’s imagination and go beyond perceived boundaries. I quite like it and I’ll definitely be experimenting some more.
Well I had to take the photo before the glue had time to dry as rain was threatening again.
I am going to enter my card into a couple of challenges:
Allsorts – one layer cards, mine is stamped directly onto my base card with some sequins and gems as embellishments
52 Christmas Card Throwdown – sketch , which is similar to the sketch #13 at STAMPlorations, hence I thought it might make for a good reminder project as it will be easy for everyone at 52 cct to join in 🙂
Hope you feel inspired to stretch your own boundaries a little and see where it takes you …
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!
