WE LOVE TO CREATE CHALLENGE #11, ANYTHING CREATIVE MIXED MEDIUM GOES WITH POLKADOODLES

Hi there, crafters out there.....did you know.....that we


 Have a NEW challenge over at the 


 We Love To Create Challenge Blog



I have made a Christmas Card for your inspiration. I thought you could use some more inspiration for making your Cards for this Christmas. Have fun......I know I did....



I started out wtih a piece of cardstock and colored it with Distress Inks and when it was dry to lighten my paper up a bit I, played with Acrylic Paint and Gesso. I thought the color came out just the way I wanted it to be, light with a bit of purple in there.....What I did next was, I looked at the Christmas stampsets that had different shapes and sizes snowflakes in it. It took me about 6 different Christmas Stampsets to get the ones that I wanted to stamp on my Card. So I played with different colors purple and with differents sizes and shapes and stamped them randomly on my background. Untill I was finished and happy with the result. 



So after I was finished stamping and glueing my background on another piece of cardstock I had to choose again......this time I had to choose if I wanted the Christmas sentiment to be on a piece of cardstock and then onto the card OR......I would glue the Sentiment without cardstock on the card....Sometimes it is very difficult to choose and if you have doubts you simply do it twice, hahaha that is my motto. So I just cut out the Christmas sentiment twice with the Dies and put them 1 on 1 on the card and looked at what I thought was nicer. So .... I chose only the text, without the cardstock


So like this .... I made the letters a bit shiny by going over them with the Glitterpen. You can't see it on the picture I am afraid but trust me in "real" life the letters have a shiny feel over it. 




So this is my finished card for this month's challenge, I sure hope you like it and hopefully I can give you some inspiration for making your own Christmas Cards, It would be great if you could show it I am curious what you are going to make.
