Non-traditional Mashup...

Hi there,

{If you're looking for my Paper Players post, please scroll down or click here.}

I'm popping in to quickly share my Friday Mashup post (so sorry its so late!)

 So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a holiday project using "Non-Holiday Image(s)".
  2. Or Make a project with a "Messy Technique", such as spritzing, smooching, shimmer painting, or splattering with an aquapainter.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Holiday Project from Non-Holiday Stamps and a Messy Technique".  

I scratched my head for a while over this one but then had an idea to use the globe from Open Sea to make an ornament... and 'Joy to the World' came to mind!

The sentiment is from the Jolly Jingles wheel, which I selectively inked with Early Espresso, punching out with the ornament punch and sponging around the edge with Old Olive ink. I stamped the wheel again in Real Red and cut out the letters and stocking, layering them over the ornament to create a shadow effect. The globe was stamped with Always Artichoke on Old Olive card and die-cut with one of the ornaments framelits. The papers are from Candlelight Christmas dsp and I added some early espresso ribbon and a scalloped layer embossed with one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders.

I used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches...

Make sure you stop by the Friday Mashup and check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team!

Thanks for stopping by!
