Oh my goodness... here I am late for my DT post at ATS&M! I have had a very crazy week this past week and managed to quickly get my card together for the ATS&M Challenge #75 this morning - but then didn't get it posted or blogged. Oh well, guess it doesn't do my any good to moan about it. Best to just get on with it and share my card with you this week using the beautiful Christmas photo above and a terrific digital image for our sponsor this week - Sami Stamps.
Hope you like it!
A while back I was practicing a technique called faux patina. It didn't turn out quite as I would have liked (just a wee bit too much gold) but I kept the panel in hopes that I would have a reason to use it in the future.
As soon as I saw this photo I knew that this was the time to use it. I also colored the beautiful Sami image using gold tones (I think Nonni likes these colors :o) ). I also copied Kylie on a previous card she did by cutting the image so that the scarf was outside the circle - quite fun and I love the way it turned out.
Will you decide to join us this week for the Photo Inspiration Challenge #75? I sure hope so! The rest of my DT pals at ATS&M have outdone themselves with beautiful creations for you this week. And did I mention that our TOP Addict gets a prize for Sami Stamps? You better get on over to the ATS&M challenge site and check out the details :o)
I am also entering my card in the following challenges:
Sami Stamps Blog - Sami Stamps Challenge #008: Add Red or Green (or both).
I made my cocoa mug green so I could participate.
Divas by Design - Feeling Festive (holiday creations)
Merry Monday #87 - make a card with a mitten(s) on it.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me. I'm sure glad that you did! Til next time friends...stay warm and cozy. Hugs and happy crafting! D
