Very exciting news!

Good morning Lovelies! Well a very exciting day for me! I was invited to join as a DT member to a brand new challenge blog, by the very talented Sandra J Wright, of course I was thrilled to be asked and accepted, along with me are the very talented; Nicky Wilcox, Moira Gray and Tina Teasdale, so today is the launch of our brand new Challenge blog! It's an "Anythings goes challenge blog" which means you can make anything you like as long as it fits our theme! We will be running fortnightly challenges! So to kick off our first theme is "Anything goes" so nice and easy!

Here's our link!

So here's my sample! It's a bit out of my comfort zone, I love vintage style but sadly I don't feel I do it well myself! However I bought this gorgeous Stampendous stamp a while ago and hadn't used it, so thought I'd better! So I kept it simple! I stamped onto watercolour card in Chipped Saphire DI and just used a water brush to soften it and add shading, once dry I added some irredescent glitter to the roofs and snowy bits, sadly it doesn't really show in the photo as I kept it fairly subtle, I used 8x8 Kraft card base which I matted with Tim Holtz Kraft resist paper pad (Christmas) which I inked with Chipped Saphire DI on my Splodgeaway mat, a fab bit of kit! I embossed some ivory hammered card from Papermill Direct using an EF and lightly inked using a brown DI, the embellishments were cut using TH decorative strips, festive greenery and Mini snowflake rosettes, onto TH resist Kraft resist pad and inked using various DI! I hope you like it? I'm fairly pleased with it but feel I need a lot more practise with this style! Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will join us on our challenge? And of course pop over and check out the other wonderfully talented DT's samples!
