Where have I been? it's MONDAY already!!! We have had a household of cold and flu and other winter nasties... YUK! and I'm slowly on the mend, have missed this week of fabulous challenges and only just getting the chance to catch up... ready for the new challenge at...
I used quite a few of Tim's techniques on my card, mainly inspired from his tag #3 of the 12 Tags of Christmas, I used the tissue tape on grungepaper technique but instead of alcohol ink I coloured the tissue tape with copic markers, it works beautifully, has a rich colour and the copic ink remains translucent. I then smudged a generous amount of distress stickles rock candy all over.
But what I really, really wanted to try is the extreme masking technique... so, die cut tim's branch tree from mask sheet then turned the tree on it's side to become more of a branch. With blending tool, I inked tree with distress inks and stamped script in archival black. The bird is nestled in a little christmas green flower soft.
I used Snow Cap Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber for the snow flurries. The December label is from the mini holiday stamp set, inked and distressed! The glittery felt flower was created using Tattered florals die, stickles glitter for the edges and a pearl centre.
Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see their favourite techniques!!!
