Hi there, brrrrrrrrrrrr I don't know what happened to Autumn but it feels like winter has arrived here in my little corner of the UK, this morning we had a snow shower!!! Its a good job I'm getting ready for Christmas then lol. Here's my second project inspired by Linda's Christmas tags (pop over to Linda's blog to find out more, you can see Tag #2 here and find out the rules here, there are some fab prizes as the challenge is sponsored by Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique)
As I've decided to make bunting inspired by Linda's tags I've stuck to my gold colour palette but taken inspiration from the techniques Linda has used and the design of her gorgeous tag. I used the Riveted Patchwork techniqe for the background, coloured with espresso and gold alcohol inks. I just love this technique, its soooo much fun to do and I love the finished result
I've used Crafty Secrets stamps for the centres of the cogs (which are embossed with antique linen distress EP) I die cut the letters on my cricut and embossed with a sparkly red embossing powder.
The holly sprigs are Molly Blooms stamps, I embossed these onto Ranger foil with gold ep and coloured with Cranberry and Pesto alcohol inks. To finish off I've added a swirly holly die cut, embossed with a sparkly ivory EP.
I'm also entering this one in to the following challenges:
Anything goes: make your own embellishments
Do you stack up: embossing
Fussy and Fancy: anything goes
Holly Jolly: Here comes Santa
Hope you're having a good weekend, I've had a lovely crafty day and now I'm off to put my feet up and watch TV now, Strictly and Merlin tonight so I'm a happy bunny. Thanks for popping by
