Anything But A Card!

Sue, one of the Frilly talents, has chosen the current challenge theme at Frilly and Funkie, "Anything But A Card With A Twist."  Now the twist is to have an area to hide something!  For more details and inspiration from the DT, click HERE.  There will be a $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique and a best in competition Winners Badge, so come on and join in!   Lisa is looking for "Alter It" at Bloggers Challenge, so the tag and snowman should be right at home there!


The Hidden
I decided to go with a Christmas theme on a Giant Kraft Tag, hard to pull away from Halloween!   Used my score blade at 2 1/4" and then cut the edge with the Snow Flurries Die.  Thinned out some white dabber paint with water and slip/slapped the wash on the tag, next I stamped snowflakes with the white dabber paint and edged the tag edges.  The tag edge was painted with the white dabber and when dried I applied a couple of coats of Rock Candy Stickles.   Tickets were stamped with Distress Stormy Sky and clear embossed and then shaded.  The secret pull-out was stamped and glitter embossed to match the blue metallic threads.  The snowman was recycled from the backing of one of Tim's packages, embossed and then the raised snowflakes receive a covering of Rock Candy.  I really liked the subtle swirls in the print for this.  Cut out some extra parts and each piece was frosted with Rock Candy and White Dabber Paint.  I did cut out a second snowman of chipboard for depth and support! 

Once again I want to thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time out of your busy days to leave a commit.  Hope you all are enjoying the week and getting all inky!
