Snowy Background



Good Saturday morning friends!  I'm back today with my weekly challenge card for Our Creative Corner.  This week the talented Ms. Sue Butler is our hostess and she is challenging us to make our own background.  And I do mean it's a challenge!  Wait 'til you see the cool makes the design team has created!  I did a pretty simple masked and stamped background, starting with the music stencil from Tim Holtz, I then stamped over it with the music stamp from Artistic Outpost in Jet Black Archival Ink.    To add a little extra interest, I stamped a random dotted pattern in Snow Cap acrylic paint.

Other than that, it is pretty straight forward.  The holly leaves were cut with a Tim Holtz die as was the snowflake rosette.  The small snowflake in the center of the rosette is a SU die and the tiny snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch.  Santa and the sentiment are from the Artistic Outpost set Snowy Woods.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will visit us over at Our Creative Corner to see the other fantastic art pieces by the design team members!

I LOVE you using the music overlay to create a part of your background, then mixed with the smaller music! The non-traditional color combo is wonderful :-)

I'm with LeAnne - I love everything about this... the kraft and sepia tones, the snowy white highlights, the gorgeous AO stamps (so excited - I have the Christmas sheet en route... yes, I'll be giving in soon), the layout, and - of course - the music in the background! Gorgeous..

You're not kidding it was a challenge. Why when you are challenged to do it, your brain freezes up and slips out your ear?? OH, just me??? Haha
Well, I'm gonna have to join the band wagon and chime in with how wonderful your Christmas card is. With all you have going on, you haven't dropped the ball on being an inspiration Linda.
hugs to you,
