My Card: (click images for larger view)

I’m sorry for the really bad lighting in these photos!

This week’s prize is sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps!

I was inspired by recent challenges I’ve seen using the cracked glass technique. I love that look! Split Coast Stampers has a great tutorial here.

Here is a closeup of the snowman:

Here are the copics I used:

JustRite Challenge #35

This week’s JustRite Friday Challenge is sponsored by SpellBinders! The challenge is to make a Christmas tag using JustRite stamps. Here is my tag:

I used one of JustRite’s Old Fashioned Christmas stamps for the sentiment and image, and embossed it in gold. I colored the image with Copics and used stickles to add shine on the gifts and bottom of the sleigh. I used my Copic ABS on the ornament shapes (SpellBinders Labels Nine) so they would coordinate with the colors in the stamp. I distressed the edges of the square with distress ink (tea dye) and memento ink (rich cocoa).

Family life was very full over the past month, which is why my blogging was non-existent. I hope to be able to pick back up and do a few posts a week again.

Thanks for looking!
