So tweet for Christmas

jsldt15thdec 001

Holiday Creations ABC (Anything But a Card ) is the theme at Just Some Lines this week.There are some changes to the challenge too.From now on only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

I’ve made a mini wreath decoration featuring the totally tweet Christmas Robin by Just Some Lines .This little fella,a fabulous freebie,has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.I started with a ring of red card made using two Nestabilities Circles dies,in the same way as making a frame.A piece of cord was stapled to the back of this.I die cut two different types of snowflakes and painted one set completely with Distress Crackle Paint and just dabbing it onto the ends of the other so the kraft card shows.I punched some flowers from some Christmas papers,spritzed them,then crumpled  them up.They were layered up,added to wreath then topped with buttons.A couple of jingle bells were tied to the hanger using the same cord.I fussy cut the Robin then nestled him amongst the flowers and after cutting the sentiment into a banner style the card was curved before being glued into place.This was such a lovely project to make and apart form waiting for the paint to dry (keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue!)  it came together quite easily 🙂

    I love this. It is cute & yet it shows a lot of work & craftiness on your part. The colors, the embellies; it all works together to make one great ornament. Thank you for playing along with The Stamping Boutique Challenge #62 – Ornaments. I hope you will play along with us as we do our last 2 challenges. Good Luck~Patti TSB DT
