Flashback Friday and another Merry Monday Sketch
I am cruising right through the older Merry Monday sketches. Today I used sketch #6 and actually used a different older DSP! Yay!!! I have moved on to Ski Slope (not sure how long I've had this paper...) and since this was a favorite when it was new, I only had about 1/2 of a pack to begin with. Woo! Hoo! I also used one of the first Christmas stamps I ever bought. I stopped using this one after DD#2 was born because there were only 3 snow people, but today I threw that thinking out the window and inked this baby up! I didn't even mind coloring the images since there were only two cards being made. I tried to keep the colors neutral so they didn't clash with the dsp.
After putting the whole thing together and photographing it, I really think I should have matted the image on a piece of riding hood red paper to make it stand out a little more... hmmm...
This card definitely fit the original purpose of my Flashback Fridays. I used retired DSP, a very old stamp, and the snowflake brad was also from my older stash! After putting a little glitter on the snow drifts, I decided to glitter up the brad as well. It looked much better with a little bling!
I hope all of my fellow Americans enjoyed some fireworks and festivities over the holiday! Our day was pretty low key- a family cookout and then a trip in town to watch the fireworks display.
