Let's get down to business. As always the 2 teams - Pinks and Purples - are playing together, but they have own themes. The Pinkies are feeling nostalgic with "A Vintage Christmas" and the Purplies would like you to make a project that is "Christmas But Not A Card".
Here's my vintage creation... I think it's vintage ... I hope it is.
The background paper is from Dovecraft's Back To Basics Christmas Vintage Collection. The images are by Chocolate Baroque. The mantle piece is from Santa Baby. The bookshelf and greeting are from The Gift of Christmas. Incidentally, you'll find that bookshelf on my very first DT make for Eclectic Ellapu way back in Oct 2012. I've taken something old and paired it with a new stamp that was released this year. Talk about timeless versatility ... and value for money to boot!
I used Distress Inks in Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen to age the cardstock.
Here's close-up of the image. I used Graph'It markers to colour and to finish some Glossy Accents on the baubles, Stickles for sparkle and Liquid Pearls for subtle dimension.
The sentiment inside is from Chocolate Baroque's Warm Christmas Greetings, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.
Here are the stamp sets used and you can get them over at the Christmas section of Chocolate Baroque's online store.
Challenges for this oldie:
That's right. You have 2 whole months to play. This will be our last challenge for the year. We're taking a break in January and will be back a brand new challenge on 1 February 2015.
Have a beautiful day, friends. Enjoy the run-up to Christmas.
