I know, I am pathetic when it comes to post titles! It's really like pulling teeth for me, I cannot figure out what to write!
Not too many more Christmas cards to come from me now, phew, I am quite glad, I want to move on to other things.
I am always inspired by those super bloggers out there, one of them being Jennifer McGuire. I don't think I ever leave her blog without learning something new. This time is was about using foil tape from Tim Holtz.
I had seen this silver and gold foil tape forever and always walked away from it, not knowing what one would do with it. Well, Jennifer suggested using a strip of it to accent a card and that you could even colour it with a Copic Marker. So, after adhering the centre strip of patterned paper I decided to try her idea and adhered two strips of foil tape down each side and coloured each with a brown Copic Marker to take off that harsh silver shine. I really like that coppery shine and how it went perfectly with the colours in the designer paper!
I then laid down a sentiment strip and die cut a snowflake and applied stickles very liberally over the top.
I then went on to make another version:
I changed up the colours this time and went with a double layered snowflake which was die cut in patterned paper and inked around the edges with some Vintage Photo distress ink. I added a metallic brad to the centre.
Thank you for popping by....now we count down to a brand new year filled with new and wondrous experiences!
