It's Friday again! Where does the time go?!
This week's challenge over at the Crafty Catz is 'Anything Goes' and was chosen by our sweet Carol, the best boss lady ever :) It is Halloween and I know I should have made something fitting, but I am somehow in a Christmas mood and for me making Christmas cards is a sweet reminder that Crimbo is just around the corner! I can't wait! Before I show you what I made for this challenge I would like to mention that we have TWO sponsors this week:
The Paper Nest Dolls are a collection of original artwork, all done hand, by Christine Young the founder. All artwork is unique and inspired by one of Christine Young's children and then turned into a rubber or digital stamp.
prize is $25 to the Paper Nest Dolls
Isn't that glittery shimmer pretty?! First, I created my front panel using my new Cling Film Emboss Technique and the gorgeous frantage by Stampendous (Shabby White). I cut it to size, rounded my corners on both, the panel and my white base and adhered the panel to my base. I added a golden strip and a sentiment. The pretty poinsettia is stamped on a card that was colorised using the Barn Door Distress Ink by Tim Holtz. The stamp is by Penny Black and it came with a craft magazine! Gorgeous! I stamped it twice, cut out two different sizes out of it and put together. The center is heat embossed using the same frantage and some golden caviar micro beads. I hope you like it! Have you tried the cling film emboss technique yet? If not, I must warn you... it is quite addictive! I made a number of backgrounds like this so this is not the last card you are seeing using this technique :)
Now hop over to the Crafty Catz to check out more inspirational creations from my lovely team mates..
