Distressed & Sanded

within in an inch of it's life!  lol  Seriously, every element (with the exception of the 4 clear acrylic bits) on this piece has seen sandpaper, distress ink, distress stickles and/or distress crackle paint. 

I started out with a chipboard circle then painted it with Claudine's Trad Tan.  Two of Wendy's new background stamps (script, dot border) were stamped in archival ink.  The poinsettia is a Sizzix die that was cut from Core'dinations card stock.  Tim's flourish was cut from harlequin grunge board.  Lots of red, green, and brown inks were used as well as a bit of black and gold.  Tim's Christmas ticket was stamped on his ticket die.

The drying time on this project took tons more time than the actual thought & build process. 


  1. Beautiful piece, love the poinsettia, gorgeous, just gorgeous. Tracy Evans x
