Hello, our current Funkie Junkie Focus is "A Snowy Day". The aim was to create a winter project made using new Tim Holtz Sizzix Holiday release dies. My project utilizes old and new dies plus some Holiday Idea-ology thrown in for good measure! The base is a Medium Etcetera Thickboards Tag.
Other Etcetera components used are the Cathedral Windows and Bracket Trims.
This year's larger size Idea-ology Salvaged Reindeer are a favorite of mine! Also the Idea-ology Pinecones (love them!)
The new Woodgrain 3-D Texture Fades embossing folder provides scrumptious texture on the bottom of the tag, backed up by plaid from the Christmas Backdrops paper pack. I used Idea-ology Icicles (retired) from my stash – I coated them with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Rock Candy Glitter.
The snowflakes are cut from white cardstock coated with the new Seasonal Sparkle Texture Paste. Icicle Crackle Paste (retired) and Mica Flakes add sparkle to the background sky.
Here are some of the steps in the process:
1) The Sizzix 3-D embossing folders really are fabulous. The detail is amazing! I added some subtle shine to this one by blending Mica Distress Crayons over the top of the embossing with my finger.
2) I actually had some long retired Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint in my stash that I used on the cathedral window. Nice!
3) I spread a thin layer of Sparkle Texture Paste onto white cardstock. When it was dry, I cut out all the snowflakes. The gold flecks in the paste are so nice!
4) Oxide Sprays for the win! They made the perfect wintery background.
5) Winning some more with the new tree dies! I'll have to do another project where I use the ornaments on the Colorize tree. ;-)
6) Building up the layers on the tag. The ledge is a piece of foam core board supported by layered up Bracket Trims.
