I am still building up my stock to sell at Dotty's Teahouse this Christmas so again I have made a Jane's Journal Christmas card version of Tim's tag.
I used his rustic lantern die and added aluminium strip to make it look metallic. I added my own "nuts" and "bolts" too using some cake decorating tools and punches as embossing tools.
I added black acrylic paint, which I removed most of, to give a rusted effect. I left out the centre of the lamp as I wanted more of the background to show through. I added vellum for a misty vintage feel.
I don't own any distress crayons so I gave some depth to my background using black oil pastel which I smudged with my fingers.
It was then time to put my card together and this is what I came up with.
I added some Cheery Lynn and MB die cuts. My sentiment is by Tim Holtz.
I added some DecoArt snow and Glamour Dust to give a snowy effect.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
