Oh Deer Winter is here!

This is my last card for the Catch the Bug Christmas in July day 7 Recipe Challenge.  This is using the Friday Freebie image and adding some sparkle which is from the Sakura jelly glitter pen on the snowflakes and bell on the collar and the glitter red paper.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create.  The recipe is to do Black, White or kraft with a pop of another color which I added red.  I actually managed to complete the week.  It just took me longer than I wanted....my daughter and her boyfriend came today with their new pup which was a distraction.

All Wrapped Up in Christmas

I am continuing on with the Catch the Bug Christmas in July Challenge and here is my Day 3 which is Gift Wrappin' with non-traditional Christmas colors.  So I used the JJ Wrapped Up which I can't find in the store anymore and colored her in blue.  I made my own hand written sentiment.

Wild for You

I couldn't help myself....I had to invest in the new Distress Oxide Inks.  For this card, I did blending of the Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick and then sprayed water on top, heat it, and then stamped an image from Sweet and Sassy.  For the background, I put the three inks on my craft sheet sprayed water on that and ran my watercolor paper through it and heat it and repeated the process it several times until I got the final color.  Then I sprayed water on the top and heated that.  I stamped the sentiment which is from My Favorite Things.  It was a lot of fun.
