CCAYR - Oct - Winter Sports

 Hello there!  It's time for another fun challenge over on the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog.  Our theme this month is Winter Sports.  We also have a picture to help inspire you.  You can use the colors, decorations, etc to jump start ideas for your project.  

I was going for a snow angel look.  Not sure if I nailed it or not....LOL!  I used texture paste with a circle brushstrokes stamp to get the look of the icy patch.  It's really crackled and a bit shiny in real life so it looks a bit better than in the photo.  

Distress Oxide - Hickory Smoke
Tim Holtz -Thin Ice die
Ranger Texture Paste Translucent
Tim Holtz - Brushstrokes stamps
Tim Holtz - Stamptember 2021 - trees
Tim Holtz - Cozy Christmas stamps- sentiment
Stamping Platform
Glossy Accents

Toil & Trouble

 Hello there!  Don't you love it when the vision in your head comes out way better in real life?  LOL!  That's what happened with this one.  Love it!  I decided not to put a sentiment on this because there was already quite a bit going on.  Love how the brickwork turned out.  It's one of those things where it's never the same twice.
