Seasonal Atc


Again not the best photo in the world, but it is dark, raining and blowing a gale!!!  Have had to incorporate three challenges into this ATC as unfortunately I haven't got time to make a separate piece for each one.

Background is marbling with distress stains - picket fence, brushed pewter, broken china, faded jeans. My new stamp picked up from Hobby House - Great Impressions - Let it snow. The snowman from the TH mini blue print stamp set, cut out and coloured with distress markers.  The snowman is actually slightly tinted with broken china distress marker but you can't see it in the photo.

"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" also known as "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945


Challenges:


And this is it this morning in glowing sunlight!!  I'm also going enter him into T!m's December tag challenge, even though he's not a tag, but could easily be made into one if need be!!!!  But I've used quite a lot of the techniques.

That's so cute - the background is very cool with the words just hovering in those gorgeous blended colours, and the mini snowman is fabulous!

Hi Sam. Sorry I've been absent for a while but have been ill. Now feeling a little more human and trying to catch up!
Wish I'd bought these mini blueprint stamps particularly as the ATC you've made looks so good! I love the background with the words just visible - such a fab effect! Think I'd make a whole load of these, stick them onto cards and away to the post box!! Thanks for the inspiration!
So glad you joined us at Anything But A Card this time.

My Photo
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
