Below is Linda's gorgeous tag. Please pop over to her blog and give her some love and see ALL the fabulous inspiration! Her challenge is open 'til Dec. 20th and is sponsored by her wonderful shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique where you can find mostly anything you need to craft, and the service is outstanding! Every order is shipped immediately, and when it arrives you will be surprised with a little gift she includes. For this challenge, she is generously offering THREE gift vouchers to three very lucky winners, and everyone who participates and follows the easy rules receives a generous 15 % off their order in January! What could be better than that?!
It's pretty obvious I was inspired by Linda's gold and white palette and her background of gesso and texture paste for that dreamy white snow. And of course her delicate snowflake and wispy cheese cloth. To me, this tag is a little slice of Heaven.
I gave my background a light blending of Vintage Photo Distress ink. I used the Layering Snowflake and accompanying Texture Fade like Linda did, but I swiped on ranger Embossing Dabber and heat embossed with gold powder and a sprinkle of Frantage. I used Festive Greenery die by Tim Holtz for my sprigs in gold card, and added DecoArt Snow Writer and Glamour Dust to the foliage as well as along the top of my card. I brushed my cheesecloth with Ranger Multi Matte Medium and sprinkled on Glamour Dust. Difficult to capture that shimmer with Mr. I phone, but it's there! The sentiment is Tim Holtz Handwritten Holidays Thinlit, heat embossed in gold. I thought about putting a little bling in the center of my snowflake like Linda did, but decided the Frantage gave it just enough glamour! I hope you agree!
That's it for today! Hopefully I'll have Week 11 ready for you tomorrow.
I would like to enter my card into the following inspiring challenges:
