Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Winter Blues" Challenge
When Karen Letchworth thinks of "Winter Blues", the water coloring technique comes to mind for some reason. So, Karen grabbed a Canvas Tag and used simple water colors to paint it blue. She did the very same thing with a length of Twill Tape; as both of these materials grab the water color quite nicely. The Canvas Tag almost looks denim after painted. Next, Karen embellished her tag using some stamps, glitter, seam binding, a button, Baker's Twine, and two felt snowflakes that are attached to a Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tag. It's a very simple project, but gives a great "Winter Blues" effect. For more details about the products used on this little "Winter Blues" tag, please stop by Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over to say hello. Have fun creating your project this week!
For this week's "Winter Blues" challenge, Tammy started by creating her focal image using the emboss resist technique. This allowed her to use distress inks to create her blue background. Next she matted the focal image using a coordinated die-cut. Tammy took a scrap piece of white cardstock and stamped a tiny heart backgrond in the blue distress ink and punched out two hearts and layered them in the center of the wreath. To build her card, she started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock onto which she pieced together her patterned papers. She cut two banners and layered them on the right side of the card front. Her sentiment was made from Seasonal Chit Chat Word Stickers. A length of crochet trim was added to the top of the card. She then moved to the bottom of the card and took pinking shears and trimmed a piece of white cardstock to give another decorative touch. Next she wrapped the card front vertically with a length of White Twill Tape and tied off in a bow where she then created an additional multi-loop bow from Metallic Twist Hemp Cord embellished with a Custom Fastener.
