Scrap Africa snowflake challenge.12:57:00 PM
there's a new challenge up over at Scrap Africa - which i am co-hosting and challenging you on this month...I love themed challenges as inspiration and a starting point for creativity, having said that i hate following rules too but i usually use them to trigger an idea, colour scheme or theme. so if you are in need of getting a creative jump start this festive season then join us and come and play along...
the challenge was snowflakes, stencilling and glitter, and here's what i did with my tag.
the background was coloured using Mister Huey inks and Distress inks. Once dry i used a circle stencil and stenciled two different colours of ink over each other. i also inked the edges a bit darker to add definition.
i used the same colours of ink to colour my seam binding ribbon - you can get yours from www.scrapbookstudio.co.za - they have loads of colours ins stock and their service is really great.
the snowflake is from Celebr8 and distributed by The Wholesaler. i love these snowflake layered chippies - they are so detailed and delicate. i misted the top layer with Mister Huey and then once dry added a layer of Star Dust Glitter glue.
to finish off my tag i added some stamping and diamante for texture and dimension and added pattern. this would make a great gift tag for a pressie....
head on over to the blog and see what the rest of the amazing team came up with - truly different and unique. and for a chance to win some goodies....play along with us! we would love to see what you do with your snowflakes.
