Just Believe......

 This is the project from this months Christmas class - an amazingly simple yet effect wall hanging using distress inks, Stampers Anonymous stamps and promarkers.  The ladies were thrilled with their efforts and had the opportunity to play further with my stamp collection coming up with their own versions.
Wonky wire here but you get the gist of the finished piece.  I love distress inks and sharing my passion for them is always such a buzz.
Colours used here are antique linen, tea dye and aged mahogany.  Stamping in Momento so the promarkers don't bleed the ink.
A fun class.

Challenges I am entering with this are
Sugar creek hollow Vintage Christmas in July
Crafty Hazelnuts challenge - tie a ribbon

Upcycling for Christmas

 I am way behind in my Christmas preparations so was thrilled to see a fab project on Pinterest that grabbed my eye - they used a bean can but I had this can waiting for inspiration so decided to make it a useful decoration.
 Black card, promarkers and a bit of festive greenery from Tim Holtz dies - a little fake snow and here is a Snowmans hat!
Filled with snowballs in the guess of mint imperials.
Wow I loved playing with this and getting into the festive spirit even if we are still in July!

Challenges I am entering this for are
and ABC challenge which is surprise (the surprise is the lid coming off to reveal snowballs)
Hope you are beginning to feel a little festive too x
