a bit of TIME!!


Have you ever had an idea in your head......didn't go with it and tried something else which became
an EPIC FAIL.....
only to go back to your original idea......
WELL....that's what happened to me with this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show...
 
ELEMENTS OF TIME!!





Here is a little quickie tutorial on how I made the holly....
(tim kinda has me in the tutorial mood...hehehe)

Gather Canvas Corp Canvas, Peeled Paint ~ Ink and Stain, Craft Sheet, Heat it Tool, Biscotti PPM, Holly Stamp, Scissors, Multi Medium & Paint Brush.


Ink stamp with Peeled Paint, spritz on some Biscotti PPM



Stamp onto Canvas and cut out!!


Paint over cut out holly with Multi Medium.

Dry holly with Heat it Tool!


With Peeled Paint Distress Stain, rub around edges of holly.


Spritz again with a bit of Biscotti PPM and dry again.


Add some red bling for berries....and there you have it!!!


I created two for my tag......
