Getting ready for Christmas?

Don't usually make all my Christmas cards anymore BUT...I feel the need to make some.  New challenge at the Stampotique blog is to make an early Christmas card.  Umm..I don't think it is too early to start lol
I used "bird lady"  and put her on this sponged / stenciled background.  I am crazy about her and I probably use her too that possible?   "Get jolly" is computer generated. 
Thanks for looking- Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

splat! a splotch of paint!


Today we are challenging you to use a SPLAT! of paint somewhere on your design.  We all love to get messy once in awhile and this week is your perfect opportunity to throw on some grubby clothes and splatter that paint all over your creation.

Can't wait to see the splotches!
Heres' mine!
 I used "kitty monster" from the Stampotique store on some dp.  Stenciled with some acrylics (stencils Ronda P) and did a little doodleing with a uniball pen.  Sentiment is from a sticker sheet.

 Below is for the "creative every day blog"...Loved this pic of my oldest sleeping with his first born daughter about a month or two after she was born and I had to do something with it.  Collaged it on canvas  :)
 Ingredients?  various scraps dp, gesso, acrylics, stencils= Julie Balzer, Ronda P.  Pic printed on white cs and doodled with white uniball pen.  Thanks for looking!

Can you use one layer?

Can you really only USE ONE LAYER for your card??
Pretty tough to do!
Introducing the new challenge by the sweet Sam from the Stampotique dt:

Hi Stampotiquers! I'm so excited to be your host this week and I'm inviting you to make a creation using just one layer. It doesn't necessarily have to be clean and simple, that's the challenge! I love lots and lots of layers but to achieve a sense of depth to a creation using no embellishments etc can really get you scratching your head and rubbing your chin! Most importantly have fun ;)
Well Sam this is definitely a challenge for me but I pulled it out!  lol
I used "old timey frog" from the Stampotique store.  I just stamped him on white cs and colored with copic markers.  Then I punched some leaves with my ms punch on another piece of cs and stenciled thru the paper with distress inks.  The sun was simply "doodled" on top of some dylusions sprayed inks.  TFL and check out the dt challenge blog for the deets to win a gift to the Stampotique store.
