The professor gets his Christmas Groove on...
Hello there! I was having a little fun the other night creating this card - Queen was blaring through Alexa and I was just feeling a little mischievious - so I ended up stamping the rather handsome professor from Tim Holtz and making him fit for the season....
Having fussy cut him out I took an 8x8 card and roughly applied distress oxide rustic-wilderness with a sponge and tool I then added water to create a speckled effect. Next I applied more of the oxide through holiday-script layering stencil and then I added the die cut pinecone.
Hope you can join in the fun too over at Countryview Challenges which is anything goes Christmas this month!

Floral dream at Chocolate Baroque and Indian summer at IndigoBlu.
Hope you are okay. We are good - just getting ready to embrace tier 3 - again - but with all the shops open it won't seem as bad. Going to be a weird Christmas though to end a weird year. Hopefully we'll be back to something resembling normal soon although I do worry that we can't really go on as normal due to climate change. We shall see.
I have a post on the chocolate Baroque blog today and I had one on the indigoBlu facebook page on Wednesday - just catching up with posting here. So for IndigoBlu facebook page this is my make from the Indian summer shows in September.
