December Mixed Media Challenge

Hello, Crafty Friends!

It's Sunday 3rd December today which means, it's the start of a new Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As you know Anything Mixed Media Goes as long as it is not a card and you use at least one stencil.

My DT contribution for December is ... a Christmas tag ....

As you may have already noticed, I am not one for using traditional colours this year. Turquoise and purple seems to be my favourite combination.

I cut the largest Manila Tags Nesting Dies twice once from plum card and once from a piece of brusho coloured card before edging the latter using one of the ATC/Tag Builder Dies. I used white paste through the Trees 1 stencil for a wintery look, added some washi, die-cut sleigh and sentiment before finishing off with tiny stars, a little gold edging, Stickles and fibers.

I hope you feel inspired to dig into your crafty resourcefulness and create something to enjoy  .... why not link it up with the Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme for the Mixed Media Challenge is always Anything Mixed Media Goes except cards which means projects such as tags, ATCs, canvases, layouts, art journal pages etc, are perfect for entering, and you must have used at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The challenge will close at the end of the month. You can find the full challenge details plus more Mixed Media inspiration here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

Ooops, almost forgot to mention the prizes: one winner as chosen by the Mixed Media DT will receive a $10 gift certificate and two Top Picks will receive a $5 gift certificate each, all of course redeemable at the STAMPlorations Shop ... but that's not all ... if there are 25 or more entries one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive two standard sized stencils of their choice.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share.

Have a lovely day!
