I made two projects today. The first is for the "Wrap it up warm" challenge. I made a box out of Kraft cardstock, scored at 1/4' intervals, and ink distressed it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger). I made a bow out of burlap ribbon, and some fancy trim, and added a stamped tag, because a gift is not complete without a tag right? I used three WMS sets on this tag: Festive Foliage, Warm Fuzzies, and Elf Made. The tag was made with a WMS die called Stitched Tags. My flakes are a little goopy, but I liked them that way. They stamp clear and beautiful if you use Versamark ink and embossing powder. I used a thick white, wet pigment ink, and was stamping them while the paper was still in the die. That made the lines less defined because of the pressure required to stamp over the die.
The "Helicopter pods" (that's what we called them as kids. I have no idea what their technical name is.) were "Rock-n-Rolled with Olive Grove and Rich Cocoa Memento Inks. The berries were colored with Copics.
My next project is for the "Old Pajamas" challenge to use Candy Jar Christmas sets. I tell ya, Mrs. Claus can be a difficult lady. I couldn't get the framing right. Ovals, embossing powders, white on black, or black on white. We finally both agreed this was good. I thought she looked very authoritative in this silhouette, so the Candy Jar sentiment "Been Good?" seemed appropriate. :)
That's it for today's projects. I hope you have entered some projects for the challenges. The more you enter, the better chance you have of winning some Waltzingmouse Store credit!
