Another Monday morning. The weekend was great. We purchased our first Christmas gift of the season. We are a little slow this year. The children are grown and it won't take as long to do the shopping.
Joan's Weekly Challenge #11 Animal Winter Theme Tag is a two part challenge this week. Meaning you can do a card and a tag. Yesterday I posted a card at Joan's. Today I am posting my tag. Check the challenge out here.. http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2011/11/this-weeks-challenge_17.html
Make a card or tag using some kind of animal
Use a die
Use some kind of embossing
Create a winter scene
And here is my tag.....
I used a large luggage tag that measures 8 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches. I cover the tag in snowflake paper. My embossing is the horse and man. They are embossed in black and colorized with copic markers. I then hand cut them. They were the inspiration for this tag scene. The lamp post is a cheery lynn die from Joan's cut from silver mirror card. The country house is a memory box die from Joan's cut from white pearl embossed cardstock. The tree is a spellbinders die cut from mirror card. The bottom of the tag looks like an icy street. I created this using glossy accents and diamond dust. The top of the tag has a pearl garland. For my tag ties I used white fiber, silver fiber, and blue velvet ribbon. I make my tag ties long just because it creates a pretty finish to any tag.
This challenge has been a spring board for so many ideas. They are all floating around in my head. We'll see how many more come out in art.
