Morning all, Happy New Year! Today it is time for my weekly DT creation for Katzelkraft. The challenge for January is Coloured Winter.
There are many things I think of when I think of Winter and as we have only just left another Christmas behind us I am still thinking along the lines of decorations and baubles so my take on the challenge are coloured Winter baubles. The background of my card has been stencilled with Tim Holtz Stars Layering stencil using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
I wanted to make the central bauble stand out from the crowd so I added a cicular piece decorated with stamped Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I cut a circle from mountboard using Tim Holtz Sized Circles die and then added black UTEE and Tropic Red Embossing Crystals to my melt pot and once melted I poured onto the circular piece and then pressed the Geometric Ornament stamp onto the hot enamel, allowed to cool a little and then removed the stamp. Once it had cooled a little I also cut around the shape with a pair of scissors to remove any excess UTEE from the edges. To highlight the wonderful design I applied White Fire wax to the top.
I died vintage seam binding with Fired Brick Distress Ink and added a bow to the top of each of the baubles along with a Christmas button to the centre of each for added interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you like my take on this months challenge.
