Hello, here I am again with my eleventh card for the Funkie Junkie challenge. Linda’s beautiful tag is HERE & interestingly, as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do, (an extremely rare occurrence for me). I loved the glittered snowflakes & reindeer & how the white trees looked against the background colours. Here’s what they inspired:
I used Picked Raspberry distress ink on a snowflake embossing folder to make the background, then covering the card with embossing ink & both clear & sparkly EPs. The scenic dies are Memory Box & Marianne Creatables. As with last night’s card, I added glitter to the two trees initially, but it didn’t give the effect I wanted, so on went the gold stickles.
Side note: Ever since I started this crafting lark, I have said that I am most definitely NOT a glitter person. The glitters I have confirm this. However, a few weeks ago I went to The Artistic Stamper’s Christmas party day & I got to use Distress glitters for the first time. They are fantastic. Not at all ‘blingy’ & they’re quite chunky, so they don’t go all over the place. And yes, you’ve guessed it; I want them all.
Anyway, that’s my eleventh card finished. For all the information about the FJ challenge please go HERE. It is very kindly sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique, which I’m trying not to look at, because every time I do, my wish list gets longer.
I shall return tomorrow with my twelfth card.
