Moving away from Halloween and getting into the Christmas Spirit with the current CC2 #26 challenge at Studio L-3! Linda has instructed us to open Tim's CC2 book to page 40, Crumpled Kraft Suede. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is the fabulous sponsor for this week's challenge and Linda is offering a sweet gift certificate to her store for $25.00! WooHoo! I am also linking this tag up to The Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas #6, in which I was inspired by Linda's tree and time piece! Of course I did my own thing! Simon Says Stamp and Show is also generously sponsoring their challenge of "Just add Pearl."
As with every CC2 challenge, we cannot tell you about the technique out of respect for Tim, so just buy the book! I will say that Trader's Joe came to the rescue for my "kraft" material! Love Trader Joe's! I followed the technique and used Picket Fence and Pine Needles for stains and Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls. For my chip board cut tree, I used up my excess ink on the craft mat. Added some lights and garland with a little white dabber snow. The little gifts are Tim's fragments, covered with paper and decorated. Added some extra pearl trim and pieces for balance! The time piece was gold embossed and then the raised numbers sanded, the little Christmas tree was embossed with my own little mix and I added little Red Stickle Ornaments!
This was a fun project and did take more time than I thought it would. Lots of drying and decorating. As always I thank you for taking the time to visit and comment! Those of you on the East Coast, I sure hope you are doing OK and actually able to read this! Be safe!
