It's almost Christmas

 Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week is: LOL (snarky or funny)

And here is the card I created:
I went a little to the snarky side.  I haven't used this set a whole lot because I try not to do too much "potty humor", but I really couldn't resist.  It actually started with a fun sketch I saw (see my challenge list below) which led me to a slimline card and this larger sized sentiment.  And of course, I had to add the outhouse.  I free-hand cut my my snowbank and traced it onto my background panel.  I stamped the pine tree repeatedly across the tree line with Black Soot Distress oxides so they would be visible but also blend in a little.  I stamped the tree again twice with a pine green ink and then sponged blue ink around the edges to blend them into the background.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut the outhouse.  I stamped the main sentiment with versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I adhered the snowbank, trees and outhouse in place and then splatted on some white paint to look like snow.  I added a little bit of blue marker to make a "path" to the outhouse.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment with navy ink, fussy cut it out and adhered it with some foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this challenge.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
