Firstly using everyday cardboard as the base and peeling the top layer to expose the corigated inner, I had fun grunging it up with my prima distress tool I then spread Jo Sonja's texture paste around the edges which I let dry (you could use a heat gun) then I inked with TH distress inks - Dusty Concord and Vintage Photo and added some metallic rub-ons finishing with a spritz of Marshmellow glimmermist giving it a snowlike shimmer all from my stash. I layered purple bazzill which again I used my distressing tool ( just looove this tool ) all around the edges before adding the top layer of gorgeous Graphic45 Nutcraker Sweet Collection paper. This too I distresses, inked, sanded and spritzed with the above mentioned TH distress inks and glimmermist! It's a little hard to see but it really has a beauiful shimmer to the paper :) I added a touch of vintage lace, glueing it around the edge.The flower spray consists of die cuts which I cut out using TH Festive Greenery die (love this die and don't use it nearly enough!), Prima Cartier Aquinna blossom and left over Prima spray off cuts, string of pearls and two handmade hat pins. Lastly adding some copper antique chain and a few charms and beads so I could hang it.
Thanks for popping by, I know I haven't been a good blogger of late but its one of my 2013 goals :)
Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe prosperous New Year!
