4x4 card, red background, snowflakes (any number, any type), 1 ribbon, 1 stamped sentiment. And that's ALL!
She was pretty clear - in an effort to get me to color INSIDE the lines I'd wager. (insert evil laugh here) Well, I followed the challenge, and still broke the rules! (insert more evil laughter) I made a 4x4 card out of black cardstock. I made a red background by embossing the red cardstock with a Cuttlebug EF (diamond plate). But then I matted my snowflake with red and black cardstock. Plus, I dusted the embossed cardstock with pearl white Pearl Ex powder. (more evil laughter)
I have my one ribbon. I have my snowflake, which is a glittery sticker I found at Walmart of all places. I added a rhinestone to the snowflake (I will admit, it did NOT come that way!). I then stamped my sentiment (Papertrey Ink) with white ink (Stampin' Up) and then embossed it with my custom embossing powder. The powder is a combo of clear embossing powder, micro pearl Pearl Ex, and pearl white Pearl Ex. I have a whole bin of these custom colors that I made.So there...just a tiny bit of cheating!
Here are the photos I took of Tim Holtz on Saturday at the Carson, CA stamp convention. They are not so great due to the lighting, and there was no way to get into the photo with him seeing as how he was WORKING, plus the table was set up so we could not mob him! LOL But there he is, working away.I sure hope he does not mind me plastering him on my blog! You can also see some of his crafty junk all over the table. He had a bunch of stuff. And he's like me! He works in this 12x12 space while all the junk piles up around him.
