Tis the Season at Frilly and Funkie

We're kicking off the second week over at Frilly and Funkie of the Tis the Season challenge. Nancy is our lovely host and here's what she has to say:

With Christmas quickly approaching I've chosen the theme of: 'Tis the Season!' I'm keeping it super simple. You may create any type of vintage or shabby chic holiday themed project - whatever winter holiday you celebrate!

I decided to make a Christmas screen, but I'm not sharing too many details today as I'll be back on Friday to show you how it came together. The panels were all cut using the Tim Holtz Arches die and then used Distress Inks to get some colour down.

 I did some spritz and flick and then stamped using Archival inks. To add more splatter I used a white Sharpie pen, flooded it and then flicked it at the panels. The holly leaves and berries are done with embossing powders and the text on this panel is also done with embossing powder. I used the Tim Holtz snowflake stencil with Wendy Vecchi's gold embossing paste which the above photo has picked up beautifully.

I die cut lots of greenery using the Tim Holtz die and added a little embossing powder to these too. I'll leave it there for now and fill in all the details on Friday, so make sure you pop back then !

  7. Hi Sue!!!
    I am so happy to be here taking in the details of your festive screen. It puts me in the mood for everything Christmas and starts my day with a smile. The detail that went in to your background is a work of art. I can't wait for your Friday tutorial to see how it all came together. I am going back to drink in the beauty of your project while I sip my coffee:-))
