Carol Singers

I was thrilled to be asked to be Guest Designer at Country View Crafts after my October Halloween project here was chosen in the top 3............. even when I learnt my project was going live on the blog on Friday 13th............ yikes!! Me superstitious.............never.......... :-(

The current challenge is Bah Humbug.  The Film "A Christmas Carol" and my Tim Holtz stash heavily inspired this card which I hope you like.

A piece of Kraft resist Christmas Memories  was inked within an inch of its life with barn door until a dark shade had been achieved which really bought out the resist areas.  Frame is a spellbinders and I cut this out of metallic paper I found in my craft room, sanded it lightly. A layer of designer paper Holidays past and a salvage sticker were stuck behind the frame.  This was layered onto kraft red and black card before adding to a white card blank.  Tattered Garland die and Festive Greenery were used to cut flower greenery from various papers including co-ordinations which I sanded and inked the edges with black soot.  Message is a TH stamp a favourite of mine stamped in black archival ink onto kraft card and cut out free hand.
I couldn't resist glitter so I added some to the carol singers who are singing away on a very cold and snowy Christmas Eve!!

Thanks for looking
'til next time
