This, that and the other...

Hello to all including the weekend!
I hope everyone out there is doing well. It's been a really dark and wet old day, a true November one. Both hubby and I are down and out with The Lurgy, but at least we weren't worried about missing out on a suntan. Hoping to upgrade to couch potato status tomorrow. I decided to have a quick dabble with a card for Linda's Grungy Monday where we delve into a retro festive Tim technique full of the joys of masking. Turned out to be a long messy affair with four experimental rejects as proof. Cards always do that to me... but I sniffed through until the end.
I wanted to play with the Season's Silhouettes set but took a while to suss out the right combo of inks, powders and card stock. I stamped Mr.Deer in Fired Brick onto white card, masked him and stamped and embossed the background with clear powder. Then I blended Peeled Paint over the top masking the little chap again.
I then melted away the embossing powder using the Faux Batik method so I could continue stamping well. I used the music stamp from the Joyful Song set using the mask and also added some snowflakes working without the mask so he has a little frost on his behind which I quite like... Then just some distressing, layering, buttons, ribbon and gold thread to finish off. I did all the masking 'old-school' Post-it note style...
and this fella saw some serious mileage, especially after all four duds. Dear me, he looks like I feel...
I almost gave up and walked away but I've now dumped the losers and am feeling slightly nostalgic, Festive and alas also rather snotty. I wouldn't mind trying this out with the new Chrimbo inks...!

Anyway, that's me done. I have a DT piece and my birthday to fill the weekend, so I'll be back on Monday.Thanks for taking a peek, loving you and leaving you, Sarah.
