Joyeux Noel

Time for our monthly BLOG HOP with Artistic Oupost and this time around I am showcasing the SNOWY WOODS plate once again.
I die cut an oval from white card, brayered the card with Broken China and Fired Brick Distress Inks and then embossed the background with an embossing folder, highlighting the texture with wax.
The focal image has been stamped with Black Archival ink onto a brayered background and I have also added Joyeux Noel to the bottom of the oval. A mini tag has been added with repeat stamping of the sentiment.
I die cut a poinsettia from red card, bent to add movement and also added wax to the tips along with twine and died seam binding.
My fellow Design Team members have made some fabulous pieces to inspire you, please pop along and visit their blogs and be inspired along the way.
