Let me get the particulars of this challenge out of the way so I can show you what I'm talking about. Linda Coughlin hosts this challenge every year and you can find the details and rules (there aren't many) here. The challenge is sponsored by Linda's wonderful shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique. You can find it here.
Now on to what I made for week 10.
I apologize for the picture. The color is awful but I was using my phone which usually does a better job but the day was dreary and I couldn't find a good light. It was the colors of Linda's tag, which you can see here, that I loved. They were a little different, and to me, a little woodland. So, that was my inspiration. I started buy using DI to lightly stencil the holly in the lower left corner. A Prima stencil was used in the upper right corner with heavy body gesso. I then used Tarnished Brass, Vintage Photo, Crushed Olive, and Peeled Paint Distress Sprays on the background. I left it rather light in some areas. I then used Perfect Pearls Spray in Biscotti all over the entire page. I used some Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls in the area of the embossing and a few light spritzes in other parts of the tag. The card with the sentiment was from Kaisercraft. It was the perfect color and I loved the sentiment. I cut some gold CS with the holiday foliage die and used a glue pen and Peeled Paint Distress Glitter to create veins. I glued those down and put the card over them. I had embossed the edges of the card with Lindy's Stamp Gang's embossing powder, Desert Moon Copper Pine. The edges of the pages were glittered with the Peeled Paint DG. Here are some close ups.
And there you have my 10 entry into the this fun challenge. I'm off now to wrap some presents. I always say I'm going to wrap as they come into the house but I never quite make it!
I hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you so much for visiting at the busy time of year.
