Hello my friends. I hope you've all been enjoying your weekend. My days are all mixed up from the long Thanksgiving weekend. We spent Thanksgiving with family and had a wonderful time. My husband & daughter were off work on Friday, so I kept thinking yesterday was Sunday. I guess I'm easily confused.
I made a tag for a challenge at Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium Yahoo group. The challenge was to have a Christmas tree on your project and it had to be 3"x5". So I made a tag. For the background, I sponged some weathered wood distress ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I added a little tea dye distress ink along the edges and some faux stitching with a black marker.
For the tree, I glued some dotted green paper onto a piece of cereal box chipboard and then die cut it with my pine tree die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix). I added some snow cap paint dabber and dazzling diamonds glitter. I tore some white card stock for the snow and glued some more glitter to that. Then I tucked the tree in between the layers of snow.
The tiny bird, which I colored red, is from A Muse Artstamps.
For the sentiment, I used a Tim Holtz stamp, which I then punched out with a ticket punch (EK Success) and colored with a waterbrush and pine needles distress ink. I also added some tea dye distress ink on the edges, as well as some faux stitching. The ticket is attached with dimensional tape.
I attached some fibers to the top of the tag and added a dangle of beads, attached with a tiny safety pin. The little black thingy is black card stock punched with a circle punch and coated with two layers of clear UTEE.
I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge: tickets.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
