Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the Way.
Good Morning, I hope that you are all having a great week. We have another fun challenge starting today over on the ABC Christmas Challenge
. This week it is Samantha's turn to host and she has chosen the theme
H is for Hardware
so we want to see all of those great metal embellishments that you have been saving.
We are sponsored this week by our very own Lacey who has generously offered one lucky winner a $25.00 voucher to her store Stamp and Create.
This week we are also having a DT call so if you want to be a part of our friendly little group, be sure to stop by the challenge blog for all of the details.
Now I don't know about you but when I think of metal embellishments these days I think of all of the great creations by Tim Holtz. Having just finished his online class Creative Chemistry, I was eager to have a go this week in creating something with a Tim Style.
This tag only took three tries, the first two attempts ended up in the trash bin but I am rather please with how this one turned out. I have used alcohol inks to create the background which has just a touch of shimmer to it thanks to some metallic gold mixed in. On top of that I have added several stamped images to the background.
Then came the fun part. I had the reindeer all ready to go from a previous project that never panned out. I inked the edges and mounted it onto the tag, The red swirl was cut from red glitter paper and then mounted to the tag from behind. The bow has been fashioned from seam binding that has been inked with various green distress inks and although it is a different colour than the tag, it really does look lovely IRL. I added some bells to the bow using a jump ring and then as I still felt that something was missing I added the little charm using a mini paper clip.
I hope that you will join us. Before you head off to start creating be sure to stop by the challenge blog
and see all the rest of the beautiful DT creations.
