CCC # 21 and Simon Says Stamp & show and All things Tim

Welcome to the 21st installment of the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities (you can buy a copy of this fancinating book here) Challenge at Studio L3 - Perfectly Distressing! You'll find the instructions on page 38.



I have Got to get some of my Christmas cards made and this gives me an opportunity to make something different for everyone. Not sure just how Christmassy these are, but....


I used two of Tims stamps here and various others, cut out the santa and water colored him then foam taped him on


I tried this technique 4 times before I finally got one that looked halfway decent. Will have to play with it some more, I must be doing something wrong.



This card is entered into the following challenges:

Studio L3
All Things Tim

Yelowflower, this design is wonderfully Christmassy.. and just plain wonderful, too! You did a fabulous job on the Perfect Distress, and the water-colored Santa is adorable! I love the "Ho Ho Ho" ticket and the soft colors you used, and I know this will delight whoever receives it!
