'O' is for 'Overlay'

Did you know that there are only 157 days left to Christmas!!

If you haven't made a start on your cards then now is the time to get all of your Christmas supplies out of your cupboards, select some Christmas Carols on your music player and get into the spirit with a thimbleful of sherry ;-)

It's Lols aka Lorraine A here as the hostess for this fortnight and the theme is 

 'O' for Overlay
there are many ways you can use an overlay on cards, you can use acetate, vellum or you could even choose paper or card which needs to be lifted before you can see what is underneath. We will be looking froward to seeing what you choose to use!

The sponsor of this challenge is

Winner will receive two free digis of their choice
from Wendy’s Etsy shop

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
