If you looked at Linda's tag you'll notice that she did a weathered wood background. I loved that background which was designed by Jennie Marples. A link to the tutorial is in Linda's blog post for Tag 12. I'm pleased with the way my background turned out even though I didn't have the colors of reinker that are specified in the tutorial. I made do with what I had and I think it turned out okay. Actually, I'm pretty happy with it and I know I'll use the technique again!
While Linda's tag represented the side of house with a lovely wreath hanging on a window with a window box I decided to just do the weathered wood background. I think of it as a weathered wood fence with a wreath hanging on it. I cut the wreath with the TH wreath die out of manila CS that I sprayed with a few different green sprays. I edged it with white flocking and some iridescent glitter. I used some red gumdrops for berries and seam binding sprayed with Barn Door Distress Spray for a bow. Under the wreath I used one of the new TH Holiday Sentiments stamps with black archival ink. Here are some close ups.
Well, that's it for this year! I hope you'll check out Linda's shop, which is the sponsor for the challenge.
I want to thank Linda for hosting this fun challenge. Her inspiration is awesome and I love working on this every year.
And, I want to thank all of you who read my blog and comment. I appreciate it so much. I wish all of you the most wonderful of holiday seasons.
