Make My Monday, our first challenge in November, which should be no surprise, for we are going to be asking for challenges related to Christmas. The challenges this month have been chosen by Suzi B. I would like to welcome MYNETTE, a regular participant in our challenges, who for the next month will be our Guest Designer, a regular new feature of the blog, pop over for more details. To set the snowball rolling, the first week is Vintage/Distressed. The card I decided to make is a Victorian style but with a modern twist. The backing paper is from last year or even beyond by Papermania. I stamped the image using an unusual stamp, in that it is as round as you see, no cutting involved. I coloured it with pencils, water coloured a few areas. Decoupaged the snowman and litle bog to give more dimension. I added glitter glue on lots of the snow areas, not sure if it shows but I think it will if you enlarge it. This was matted onto the same blue card as the main card, then comes the modern twist, it was layered onto a CD, you know those that keep appearing in newspapers and through your letter box - how's that for re-cycling?
The stamp is from La Blanche, I get mine from QVC, though they are starting to appear on E-bay. please pop over to our blog and have a go. The remainder of the Design Team have made some fabulous cards to inspire you. Looking forward to visiting your blogs again. Don't forget about the DT call, check it out on the blog, you have until November 15th. Good luck to all who apply.
