Early for Once!!

This week's Grungy Monday challenge went up only 80 minutes ago and I was determined to get it done early - see when I set my mind to it it's not a Sunday afternoon rush ...

The challenge was to emboss plastic packaging and use it as an overlay in a project based on one of Tim's Christmas Tags. Here's my quick piece:


It's a piece of greyboard with inked tissue tape round the edges, distressed black gloss card and a die cut heart and wings image which I've coloured with various Inka Gold colours (I only bought the red this morning on a flying visit to the Stamp Pad!!) and stamped over the outer heart with archival black ink. I've added my embossed packaging a few 'raindrop' gems on the crown, brads to attach the acetate, a bit of red ribbon and a stamped and embossed Stampers Anonymous sentiment. Voila - done in an hour!! Sometimes it's best not to over think these things and it will go perfectly in my newly decorated black and red bedroom!! Hope you have a creative week! JulieD x
