CCC Week 23...

Well here we are at week 23 of the challenge, please go and
visit Studio L3 for all the details. The challenges are now
going to be every 2 weeks during the holiday season, I
think that is a good idea with everyone being really busy
right now.

This week's challenge is Double Distress, don't forget you need
the book to play along. This is a technique I have not really
done much of and was worried about overdoing the inking
to the point you could not see the original colours I started
with. Still I did my best to not overdo it and here is my
finished piece. The Umbrella Man is my favourite stamp and
so I have been trying to not use him too much during this
challenge, I think I have been successful with that so far but
we still have 13 more challenges to go, lol!

I wish all my friends a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you
have fun spending time with your family.

Oh wow yours is just perfect. Annette x

Ron said...

Saw this on ATT - great job with this technique - I think half the battle is finding the right embossing folder to use it with.

Sue West said...

Hi Marlene. Your double distressed background is fabulous and looks perfect with the unbrella man.

I love your entry. I haven't used that embossing folder yet - you reminded me I need to get it out! It's perfect with the umbrella man. Have a great Thanksgiving, and thank you for sharing your wonderful art.

Plume said...

Stunning composition! The destination is suggested by your choice of background texture fade. The man really seems to be going somewhere! Congratulations for that effect!

Kathy Eddy said...

This was the perfect folder for this. I have seen so many cool ideas using the rays and mine is still unused. I have to play with it!

Marlene, this is brilliant! Holy cats, I love the umbrella man and those cool, twisty arrows that go so PERFECTLY with the sentiment! You did a great job with the double distress technique-- the colors contrast beautifully and the embossing folder you used is a fabulous choice for this piece. Awesome job, my dear!

That's my favorite stamp, too, and you're welcome to use it as often as you wish! :-)
