One of the stamp sets I was happy to see in the new catalog was "Home for Christmas" this set was in a past mini catalog. I love the whole rugged look of it and, well it is a great set to color.
Coloring it on our new Texture Cuts Wood Sheets was a little tough but it worked. I don't know if I will color on them all the time, but it did make a nice effect, and it cut in the Big Shot lickety split.
Stamp Set: Home for Christmas
Paper: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Wood Sheet
Ink: Jetblack Stazon
Misc: Big Shot, Texture Plate, Top Note, Sansodor, stumps, watercolor pencils, prismacolor pencils, white gel pen
The picture makes it hard to tell that it is stamped on wood.
Here is a closer one, you can kinda see the wood grain, and then when I colored I tried to color with the grain. I tried the markers, the aqua painter, and anything that has water just seemed to bleed into the cracks, I even tried a Copic marker (had to drag those out of my cupboard) and it bled too. So the pencils and oil worked the best, even though they didn't blend super well.
So tonight I was zipping the tv channels around and came upon Starsky and Hutch…the remake with Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson. I loved that movie, they did an awesome job and the two were perfect in the roles. I remember watching the tv show when it used to be on and I totally had a crush on Paul Michael Glaser. Who else did I have a crush on growing up…TV wise, Scott Baio when he was Chachi, Mickey Dolenz from the Monkees, Ringo from the Beatles, I am sure there were more. It is funny to think back. I subscribed to Country Weekly a while ago, and then they stopped delivering them to the mailbox, so instead of refunding my money they finished my subscription with Star, I don't know half the people in the darned magazine. I must be getting old. Star is NO Country Weekly.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!

It is funny to look back on who you thought was drop dead gorgeous back then.
Love the card.
I'm glad this set stayed in the book too.

Oh Diana I love this set too!! Beautiful. I can't wait to see what else you come up with to use the wood sheets for. They are neat but I'm a little stumped as how to use them.
Awesome card Diana! I luv the effect! I have this set, I bought it right after Christmas because I was afraid they were going to retire it. I'm so happy that they kept it, it is one of my favorite Christmas sets! I will be using it alot this year.
