Time for a new Four Seasons Challenge

Hello Friends

This month begins a NEW SEASON to create with over at the Four Seasons Challenge Blog.  The theme for this month (as well as January & February) will be . . .

Anything Goes WINTER

check out this fabulous inspiration board Diane has created for you . . .


As you've probably noticed, I was inspired by the snowman & animals block.
I am having so much fun with this Del Bello's Designs stencil called Christmas Snowflake Flourish Bauble Stencil from their Sweet Poppy line.


This time I used Brillance Gold ink along with a blending brush that still had some TH distress oxide Picked Raspberry on it (hence the pinkish cast on the ribbon).

It's so much fun to use various stamps for the inside of the bauble.  Today I pulled out a couple very old stamps.  The snowman is a DRS Designs stamp called Snowman Bird Buddies. And, the sentiment is from the Verve Stamps company called Winter Mittens (I don't think they are in business any longer).  Tombo markers were used for the coloring of the stamped image.

If you haven't checked out our new FOUR SEASONS CHALLENGE BLOG (a monthly seasonal themed challenge) yet, PLEASE pop over and join in the fun.  And don't forget our latest challenge blog adventure ... PEACE ON EARTH CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG (a bi-monthly anything goes Christmas challenge).

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!

As always . . .
