Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Man


Greetings dear followers and those just visiting.  I truly appreciate every one of your visits.  It is once again time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time around, our challenge is to create a Christmas Card using a Shabby Chic Style. Now the term "Shabby Chic" probably means different things to different artists.  For me, it meant roughing up the edges of matting which were inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then spritzed and flicked, tearing parts of the matting and fraying the ribbon. A measure of music and sentiment, all by Red Lead were added next. For my focal point, I chose this beautiful trio of angels, also by Red Lead, which I stamped, trimmed and water colored with Distress Markers and mounted to a doily that was distressed with Distress Inks and added to the matting.  The adorned matting was then layered onto a beautiful piece of handmade paper that was sent to me by a blogging friend, Darlene.  A gold charm by Red Lead was repainted silver with Crackle Paint and added to the card front, along with a few pearl gems.  I hope you will pop over to FSC and see what my Design Team Sisters have created to inspire you, and then create and submit a project of your own.  Remember, one lucky participant will win a $20 gift voucher from our sponsor, FlonzCraft.  Thanks for stopping by.  Yvonne

Good grief, Charlie Brown - how did I manage to get so behind again?! You've been creating some absolute beauties since I was last here, Yvonne, and this is no exception. What a lovely image, and I love that Peace on Earth font.
