Week #20's challenge over at Linda's blog was found on page #54 and is called Industrial Grunge. I die-cut plain grunge to make the deer from Tim's new die and then used a pre-cut grunge-board snowflake for the technique itself. Background was of course, wrinkle-free distress. I had to tear some card-stock to make snow-drifts around my sign post and behind my deer because I got my messy inky hands on the background! I sprayed it with the new Perfect Pearls mist and then rubbed on some Pearl paint dabber to look like glistening snow. The signpost is a sizzix die I have jad for years. Crackle accents on it after embossing it with tim's folder and direct to paper with tea dye ink and handwriting North Pole on it. Enamel accents for the eye, hooves, tail, and belly areas.

This whole piece, in fact, is great!

Kathy, this totally puts me in the mood for eggnog and "White Christmas!" I absolutely LOVE this card!!! The Industrial Grunge looks great on the snowflakes,and the little leaping deer is DARLING!!! Love those Enamel Accents.

The snowdrifts look great, and don't you love it when you have to cover a mistake and end up with something that looks even better?

Great job, sweet lady!
