SOS 384: 'Tis the Season

Hi, friends. 

This week, Donna is the hostess at Shopping Our Stash and she's given us a good one: 'Tis the Season!  Soooo... winter, winter holidays... what's the season saying to you?

Here's my card:


  • Background made with Color Bursts in Prussian Blue and Ultramarine.  I then sprinkled water, and then added some watered-down gesso and hit it with the heat gun so the gesso didn't draw too much of the blue.
  • The trees were cut months ago with a Tim Holtz die.  The metallic tree was cut from some packaging.
  • Tim's Holiday Quotations from a couple years ago. 
  • I added sequins with Glossy Accents *just* to increase the stashiness of this project.
  • The gray matting paper was a scrap of textured cardstock.  I rubbed it with bits of sandpaper to show the texture-- of course the images don't do it justice.
Well?  What does "'Tis the Season" mean to you? See you at Shopping Our Stash!
