After a morning of doing nothing but the dreaded housework ... oh, for a self-cleaning house! ... I now feel free to sit down and have a wee chat about this card I made for Hazel's challenge at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge it's 'Go Green'- the theme of which is to go green, that is by either using the colour or by upcycling. Normally I would jump at the chance to do a bit of recycling/upcyling but, as green is my all time favourite, it had to be the colour :) It is also for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November, because, as always for this challenge, 'Anything Goes':
I trimmed a sheet of the paper down, inked the edges with Tim Holtz's Brushed Corduroy distress ink, and then layered it up with a few of the leftover snippets, to create the background for the various toppers - most of which are cut-outs from the same paper pad. The exception is the greeting card ... it's from a Simple Stories December Documented cut-apart sheet.
Two snippets of paper and the scrap of burlap were used up here so I'm skipping over to Pixie's Snippet Playground. Hooray! It's a second visit from me this week :)
It's a cold and dreary day here in south-west Scotland but nowhere as cold as it must be for those of you in north-central US where the most awful snow storms have hit. I hope those of you affected are staying safe and keeping warm.
Wherever you are I wish you a wonderful weekend.
