Our first challenge is up! - Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog

Our very first challenge at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog is posted - yay!  We will post a challenge the first of every month and you have until 6pm on the last day of the month to enter your  project.  It's always an "anything goes" challenge, as long as it is Christmas themed

For my first project, I experimented with stamping on book pages.  This is a page from an old songbook that I received in a scrapbooking kit a year or two ago.   I distressed the edges, then stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Distress Embossing powder in Vintage Photo.

I added just a touch of color to the halo and baby blanket with markers, added a tiny gem sticker to the star and added the die cut "joy" from copper shimmer paper.  I love the vintage look on this!  This technique would also work on bookprint or other subtle patterned paper.

Please check out the Merry Little Christmas challenge blog.  We'd love to have you join us in our Christmas challenges!
