Altenew December Challenge

So, I discovered this amazing, relatively new company - Altenew.  Right away, I new I had to get their Painted Flowers stamp set.  With their December Challenge, I knew I wanted to use a yellow ink with kraft ink over it - can't remember where I saw this (love the look).

MIM# 182: Mason Jar Stamping

I absolutely loved this week's MIM at Papertrey Ink by Melissa Phillips! Here's my take on the challenge.

I used Polka Dots Basics and embossed them in gold - it was a little tricky; but I'm happy with the results.  I added some sequins to the dots to add a little more interest and then embellished the jar with snowflakes and holly.

MIM# 174: Wallpaper Stamping

This weeks' Make it Monday Challenge is Wallpaper Stamping.  When I saw the challenge, I thought of using the damask on smokey shadow with clear embossing powder.  I then added the label from celebrations and flowers from beautiful brushstokes.
