Something Sandy......

...Ah, what a shame I don't mean that I am writing this from my sunlounger on a sandy beach in the Bahama's...but..what it does mean is that today the Gingersnap Creations Blog see a brand new challenge! And...guess what? It is....Sandpaper. (am not going thru the whole is it Sandpaper, Sand Paper or Sand paper thing again like yesterday...that would be tooooo boring....)




I made a card for my entry...I used some fab DCWV cardstock, running it through the Cuttlebug with a Holly folder and the Swiss Dots folder...rubbed the embossed bits with sandpaper so the white core showed...and then blended Distress Inks over the whiteness using Antique Linen to make them toned down. The little tree which I made into a bauble is another of those gorgeous stamps by Hearts In Touch...I stamped with Peeled Paint, embossed with Shabby Shutters Distress Powders and then added loads of dollops of Picket Fence Distress Stickles. The bit of ribbon and then the punched flowers were added to make it look more like a bauble...please tell me you knew instantly that I had made a bauble (LOL)...I added some little DewDropz for the tree and stamped my favest sentiment in the whole widest world (another Hearts In Touch stamp) straight onto the cardstock...blended the edges with Antique Linen to pull it all together and voila, finished!




Thanks for looking...and if you feel like a challenge today, please hop on over to the Gingersnaps... they have some beuatiful samples on display as well as this one of mine ROFL And...I almost forgot to mention....Hearts In Touch are generously offering the Christmas stamp sheet as Blog Candy for one lucky entrant! Cool huh?


I am dashing off to the blog of the man who is driving me insane at the same time as making me say oooh and aaaah everyday at his fabulous tags...I need to see what today's looks like!
