A large tag this time. Its a heavy board tag - I picked up a set of three ages ago at a show for pence! I started off by covering the whole thing with Gesso and let it dry then painted with Distress paint and again let it dry. I simply applied Cosmic Shimmer White Texture Paste through a Tim Holtz stencil then sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer glitter. When dry I delved in a box of bits I had made for previous Christmas Cards over the years and found the die cut bauble and part of a snowflake both from glitter card which coordinated perfectly! I added three punched snowflakes out of the same box to the bauble. The Penny Black sentiment is stamped in Black Versafine and embossed in clear powder on a scrap of card. I trimmed it to the shape I wanted then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The glitter wool is a snippet from a ball I bought from a charity shop years ago. I added some blue stones to the small snowflakes and a large pearl to the part snowflake. The whole thing sparkles wonderfully but it doesn't show so much in the photo.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Darnell's - NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) - I have not used the stencil before.
The Craft Barn - Stencils/Masks
Pixies Snippets Playground - Use Snippets - The card for the sentiment, the wool and the part snowflake are all snippets.
Stamploration Mixed Media Challenge - Anything but a card - must have used a stencil.
All these are awesome blogs - please hop over and have a look! Join in with the challenges too!
Thank you so much for visiting me - I am so grateful that you did! Take care. Christine xxx
