SANTA & Industrial Grunge

Who stole the week!!!!! here we are Friday already and I have only just managed to play along with this weeks CC Challenge set  by Linda at Studio L3 . In fact first time I have played all week!!!

I decided to make a Christmas Hanging using this weeks technique (I'm getting a little bit into the Christmas spirit ho ho ho -  not a lot)  Sooooo I used TH Alterations Die, Hanging Sign and followed the steps for the technique, it was a first for this one and a great learning curve, still not sure if I got it completely right.

I stamped the word Santa using Broadsheet Alphabet from Stampin' Up! and used TH DI inks to colour, mounted the whole thing onto a piece of mountboard which I stamped snowflakes from TH mini Christmas collection in stormy sky and faded jeans and worked same ink in around edges.

Close up picture close up to see technique on hanging; shows up better on the bracket  - think I have covered most of it up on the sign.  DI inks used on sign rusty hinge, black soot.

Have a safe bonfire night
Bye for now

  6. Maggie, I know exactly what you mean. My week was stolen, toao! I'm so glad you were able to squeeze i some CCC time, and I genuinely LOVE your sweet Christmas work of art!

    The Industrial Grunge looks fabulous on the hanging sign, and I think you did the technique perfectly. The background is lovely, and the SANTA letters are vibrant and beautiful. This will be adorable hung on your fireplace mantel or front door, and I hope Santa leaves you LOTS of goodies!
