Amore

Here is a pre-colored image from the Paper Shelter called That's Amore and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  The background paper I made with Distress Oxide inks of Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio and Broken China that I put on watercolor paper.  Unity has a great video that is short on the Distress Oxide Smooshing which is so quick and fun.  Italy is a place that I would like to visit or go on vacation.

TLC Create Summer Fun Blog Hop

Paulette at TLC, Create has a wonderful freebie for you of this gorgeous vintage girl with flowers.  I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distress tool.  I made the background paper by putting Distress inks on my craft sheet and then spraying them with water and running my white paper through it to soak up the paper and then heat it with a heat gun, and repeat the process until I liked the finished product of colors.  Check the TLC site for the sentiment which is also in my second card.  I made that in a tri-shutter card.  You should have arrived here from Lisa D's blog if not, you might want to see the list below, and start from the beginning so that you don't miss out on any of the wonderful freebies.

Oh Deer Winter is here!

This is my last card for the Catch the Bug Christmas in July day 7 Recipe Challenge.  This is using the Friday Freebie image and adding some sparkle which is from the Sakura jelly glitter pen on the snowflakes and bell on the collar and the glitter red paper.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create.  The recipe is to do Black, White or kraft with a pop of another color which I added red.  I actually managed to complete the week.  It just took me longer than I wanted....my daughter and her boyfriend came today with their new pup which was a distraction.
