Moving Right Along

Day 7

December 052

My Word! Was this a challenge or what? A woodgrain embossing folder – do I have one of those? Nah-Uh!

The silhouette came to the rescue yet again! (how did I live without one of these amazing machines?)  I used a purchased woodgrain background file and sized it to fit the tag.  I then attacked said tag with the embossing stylus once again.  Inking on the raised side showed up the pattern and I was pretty stocked with myself.

The flourish, the poinsettia and the wording were all cut on the silhouette – of course, lol.  I didn’t have a type charm (but I do now, haha) so I used and epoxy sticker from my stash.

Day 8

December 049

OK – not so thrilled with this one but had fun creating the houses on the silhouette as well as the Santa/Sleigh that I cut from acetate to use as a stencil/mask.  The clock face is a digital graphic and I added a Ideology spinner.  The key is silver-inked chipboard.
