Tag Tuesday Challenge #32

Louise's challenge this week is a Happy New Year challenge. The rules allow anything related to Happy New Year... I don't have very many celebration stamps so I decided to use my Cornish Heritage Farms set which has all different time stamps.

The background is sponged using Ranger Distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, with a touch of Brown Corduroy). I stamped the images using Versafine - Habenero, Vintage Sepia and Deep Lagoon. The images for the time stamps are all Cornish Heritage Farms and the Flourish is a Stampabilities and the Happy New Year is from Hero Arts.

After I sponged the background I dripped water across the front to give it the watermarks. I also added a few star gems that I colored with my Copic. I felt like I had to have some bling for New Years!

Thanks for stopping over...
