Teal Christmas

Teal Christmas - This fortnight challenge at Creative Card Crew is Christmas. That's right it is time to start moving into the season for us card makers.

I have used one of my favorite Christmas paper pads by The Paper Studio.  I love the teals that are in it. While teal is not a traditional Christmas color, it does go well with the reds and greens in this pad.

My image is Bugaboo Stamps is Christmas Brat Girl Dress. I must say that her dress is pretty. Looks like she is ready for a Christmas program.

Brat Girl is colored with Copics, then inked with Antique Linen and Peacock Feathers distress ink. The cracked look was achieved by using a stamp that was inked with Tea Dye distress ink, stamped off the page, then on the edges of the image. The cracked rubber stamp is by Deadbeat Designs. I found is at a scrap booking Convention in Dallas.

I added stardust Stickles to the rim and ball of her hat.

The flowers are made using MS's flower Lace corner punch. I found a tutorial on some one's blog on how to do this. I would love to give the site and credit to the person, but I do not remember where I found it. If someone know, please leave me a comment, so that I can properly credit her and link up for everyone to see her lovely tutorial.

I used the same MS corner punch on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by and join us with your Christmas creation at Creative Card Crew.
