Ahh another blissful Thursday! It is snowing like mad here in Calgary. Has been all day yesterday and again today. I like a White Christmas as much as the next person but this is just getting ridiculous!!! My son’s Christmas concert is today as well, so quite looking forward to that. I hear that his class are ‘gingerbreads’ 🙂
We have another fun challenge for you at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. I have been having such a great time with the ladies and these challenges. Hard to believe that I only have one more after this one! 😦
Our challenge this week is distressing…adding that little bit of fun texture and dimension to your projects. I decided to create a bit of a vintage tag for the challenge this week.
This tag is actually going onto a page in my December daily. I basically just wanted to start creating layers, so I cut the tag out of some cardstock and then used my Tim Holtz distress inks to color. I distressed the edges and added a vintage music stamp to it. After that, I just started creating some layers with a bunch of different embellishments I had around. I inked up some lace, added some stickers, die cuts, tags and I had a cute little wooden star that I added some distress ink to as well as some smooch spritz. Finally just some ribbon from my box and a button to hold it together. I hope you like it and will come and play along with us. The girls have created some wonderful projects for your inspiration this week.
