I also have some good news I won the challenge for September "Texture" at Crafts Too Challenge You here which was very exciting and I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for November........but I can say no more lol. Anyway I am very late in entering October Challenge at Crafts-Too Challenge You Christmas Festivities Twist 2 - What Christmas Means to You.
Christmas for me is all about getting together with family and giving presents which I love to wrap up and make the packaging myself if possible so for this challenge I have altered a brown carrier bag ready for someones present. I have used the Crafts-Too Die Merry Christmas Angels and Rhinestone gems which I received in my prize package from C2CU, thank you.
Papers and Father Christmas Stamp used were Tim Holtz Mini , I coloured Santa with distress inks and vintage photo used around spellbinders die cut in cream card. Lace was added to side of bag finally a large bow from Creative Expressions ribbon.
The Die Merry Christmas Angels was cut in cream card with my prize die which cuts and releases beautifully, I inked through the die with vintage photo distress ink and added gems. Sorry the photo is so bad but it was dark by the time I took photo and the challenge is ending soon so must dash over and link before it is too late
'till next time
