Joan's Garden has JustRite!
Hello there, Joan's Garden has a super prize package this week if you go to her blog you can get all the details.
For this challenge you can only use JustRite stamps.
I used the following sets Vintage Christmas and Christmas Nested Sentiments.
Most of my card is done in Gina K PL Kraft I used it for the base, insert in the window with the sentiment, stamped Santa on it, used it in the cb embossing folder snowflakes and used it for my frame. The mat is Gina K PL Cranberry Tart.
After putting the kraft through the cb folder I sponged it in white. The frame was made by misting a piece of kraft with water, spreading some liquid applique and mussing it all over while crumpling. Then I used my heat gun to dry, bringing some texture up as the liquid applique dried. I sponged some TH Walnut Stain all over, covered it with clear emboss and heated again. To me this produced an old leathery look. I colored Santas coat and hat with copics. The beard and fluff ball were colored with white metallic rub and the glasses were done with sparkle pen. I cut him out and used some small pop dots. Then I added some leaves from my stash and a wired rose I made some time ago, waiting for the perfect project to add it to.
I hope you like this one. I'm going through I mojo crises.
I do have to work later, I'm hoping to get one more card in :)
Have a great day whatever you are doing.
