Winterwonder land challenge - A one layer card!

Oh dear! I thought when I read this. The Winter wonderland challange is one layer card. How do I do that? Then I watched my son soon to be four years old playing and painting with my distress inks. If he can, I can and this is what I ended up with. Willy uses brushes as he loves to paint with them. (He costs me a fortune in distresser). I need quality he says, and refuses to paint with watercolours and other fun stuff they have at daycare. Maybe I shouldn't have allowed him to try these, but it's so great to sit next to him and feel his joy when it comes to this. That he is the only one besides me that are allowed to use my stuff. He grews iches every time we sit here. It's absolutly worth it.

So I used some blue distress inks, faded jeans mostly. A few swirly stamps from Whiff of joy, a santa's head from Panduro. And off I went with the gold and clear embossing powders. I kind of like it and it's fun to try stuff you have not done before. It's good with variations in the crafting day/week/month... :)

So take care and have fun!
Hugs,
Marie

Gorgeous Marie, fabulous colours - you can learn so much from children, they're not restricted by knowledge and have no inhibitions - lol!!!
