Gracie's Christmas Rose
Stop! I promise your at the right blog!LOL!! I know this is so totally different than my normal style but I was in the mood for something different. My Mom and I recently purchased some digis from a couple of the places Crissy designs for. This weeks challenge at Sunday with Crissy is Christmas in July. Now I will admit I probably cheated a tad on this one. Its very hard for me to get inspired to make a Christmas card with 100 degree weather!LOL! I knew I wanted to use this Gracie's roses image b/c it reminds me Christmas pictures we always get made for the kids so I went through some of my Christmas dp and came across this piece from BG wassail. Ive been wanting to try some monochromatic coloring and thought this sweet image was perfect for giving it a go. I used warm greys to color her and added some antique linen to the edges. I used another crocheted flower Anne was so sweet to send me and sponged it also w/the antique linen. I used Jens sfytt for my layout. Im really happy with how this turned out! See...never hurts to try something different!LOL! Have a good one!
