Distress It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

& this week our challenge is


& this week the design team are featuring

Tim Holtz

products on our cards.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.

Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

My background has been created by stamping some small snowflake stamps from Simon Says Stamp's Envelope Holiday Sentiments and I have stamped them in Stormy Sky distress ink & Hero Arts Soft Sky shadow ink & I very lightly blended Stormy Sky distress ink all over my background. I then sprayed Distress Resist Spray onto my background and once dry I again blended Stormy Sky & Broken China distress ink over it.

The sentiment is from Simon's Christmas Cheer stamp set & is stamped using Simon's Fog ink pad.

The corrugated card is recycled from a parcel box and the Star Anise was recycled from some potpourri I bought last Christmas and kept aside to go into my card making Christmas embellishments box.
