CCC#34: Dimensional Collage Fragments

Okay, we're getting down to the wire on these challenges.  Only one more to go after this one..............This is for StudioL3's CCC challenge, of course!
This was great fun: Dimensional Collage Fragment.  As you can see, I used the largest fragment for this.  Used my Cricut with the Summer in Paris cartridge to cut out the ornate old-fashioned chair.  Used a script stamp by Inkadinkadoo.  And, of course used Distress Inks: Frayed Burlap and Rusty Hinge.  Used some old time background patterned paper.  Added a bit of Tim Holtz' tissue tape and a cut out from a misc. piece of paper and viola!  Simples...................   

Goin' Postal

A quick postcard project for Order of the Opus Gluei (goin' postal) and Corresive Challenge Blog (distressed). Had some fun with some vintage style stamps and ink today. Working on another project as well as my son's thank you cards from his Feb. birthday party so this post is a real quick one.

I won at Outlawz ning group!!


I played along last week with the Outlawz western party----and I WON the random grand prize at Oozak.  I hadn't heard of this vendor so went and took a look.  And, guess what????  They sell Ranger Products!!!!! (as well as Copics/Cricut supplies/Stazon inkpads and a couple of stamp merchandisers, art supplies and tools---the list goes on and on.......)  They are supposed to get in the new Distress Stains and Color Washes soon.  If you want to check them out click on their logo on the sidebar (to the right).

And for fun and challenges head on over to the Outlawz ning group.  They have daily challenges for all kinds of crafters.  Click on the link underneath the pic above to go directly there!

Have a wonderful day all!!
