For this month's tag Tim used his gorgeous deer die to create his masterpiece. If you would like to see his tag and tut have a peep here. He used a new product called frosted which I am afraid I had not even heard of so I had to have a little think of how I could capture some of the essence of his gorgeous winter tag to make a Christmas card. I really loved the colours he used and I tried to produce something along his lines. I also loved the snowflake charm so wanted to bring that in too. Instead of using Frosted to give a snowy feel I tried something a little different which you will see later on.
I made this card in my studio, my last project out there as it is now far too cold.
First I had a sort out from my supplies to find some Christmas coloured DPs, stains and I also used a Dylusions spray as I only own a few of these as sprays. I used the supplies shown below. I first coated my paper with white acrylic paint as Tim did,
After it dried I added a little of everything!
After this I made a green base card to cut some festive die cuts.
So having made all my elements it was time to put my card together. This is what I came up with.
Here are a few close ups. You can clearly see my Frantage here; the deer look as if they are dancing in the snow.
