Merry and Bright Christmas

Good Day everyone,

Time for a new challenge at Tilda's Town, our theme is

Bright and Merry Christmas


For my Dt card I used Wintertime in Swedish Lapland papers from Pion, 
so love this collection.  I used red cardstock and added some Aged Mahogany 
distress ink to darken it up.


This little cutie is Called Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda 
from the new Waiting for Christmas Collection 

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E47, E57, E53, E51
Dress: E81, W00
Flowers: E19, E07, R35, R30
Green: YG97, YG91


I used Tim Holtz Alterations die called Holiday Lamppost on chipboard, 
added black paint, sanded and inked with Walnut stain and added some White gesso.
For the glass I used Frosted film on the back then filled the front part with Glossy Accent.
This way it covers the sticky side of the film and adds thickness.


My Flowers are handmade, using Magnolia Doohickeys Poinsettia die
with White Mulberry paper.  I then inked with Barn Door and Aged Mahogany 
distress inks and sprayed with Perfect Pearls .

My first Mixed Media card

Good Morning

Today I have a DT card to share with you that I created for Herazz Scrapbooking

My first Mixed Media card, but definitely not my last.  This was so much fun.  
At first when I just started layering  papers and masking it did not look like much,
 but when I applied Gesso and paint afterwards, wow!!!


On the die cuts I used white crackled texture paste, Vintage photo and Walnut stain inks.  
Then I applied paint colors Putty, Bark, Deep Sea and White Gesso.  
I also applied some Brass Metallic Rub-ons. 
I used heavy kraft cardstock for the die cuts.


Those are also the colors I used on the background papers.  I wrapped around some Jute twine 
and tied a bow in a painted wooden button using what I call baler twine.


Here's the list of materials I have used

Image: Tim Holtz Found Relatives
Paper: Tim Holtz Idea-ology Menagerie paper, Vanilla Cardstock
Mask: Crafters Workshop Specimens
Dies: Sizzix Movers Shapers Old jalopy, Mini Feather and Inkwell, Mini Clock Spellbinders Gears, Memory box Mini Gears, 
Embellishments: Metal key, Camera charm, Prima Paper Clip, Film Strip
