MC Nov/11 - Resist - Winter Hugs

I came across a very pretty calligraphic type piece that had the word masked or a stencil was used, then stamped or ornamented around it (see bottom of post). It hit me... I've done so many resist techniques - so why haven't I done one like this. Sheesh. So I used Suzanne's (Quietfire Design) "Italic" alphabet set - both caps and small letters, positioning them in a funky way.

Next I'm going to do a black and white linear piece...

Anyway to see a close up and descriptions etc, just click on card image - Enjoy.

And it fits for a bunch of challenges:
Paper Take Weekly  Anything goes with Bling
Top Tip Tuesday  #58 Make your own background (TIP: resist technique with words - please see web site for more details)
Crafty Purple Frog  Sparkle (the border at the bottom)
Digi Doodle Shops Best  #81 Winter

Stamp Insanity  #79 blues
These next blog themes are "Anything Goes"
Paper Playtime  #59
Pollycraft Challenge  #117
Fresh Brewed Designs  #71
Stamp With Sarah Kay  #155

Card by "Art by Kathy Floyd" (unable to find her web page for this card Sigh!!)

Oh, it's lovely -- the trees, mountains, sky, and that pretty border along the bottom. Gorgeous card by Kathy Floyd, too. It's no wonder you were inspired.
