To Die For at FSC!

The newest challenge at FSC is "To Die For" and DT Sister, Joanna, chose this theme.  How fun is this challenge in which you can use die cuts, cut your own dies or even punches!  Just remember to include stamping along with your choice of "Dies."  There is always a prize and a Top 3 selection, so come on and join in!  All of us at FSC, love to see you and your fabulous creations!
The embossed background on mine was actually a leftover from a previous "CC2 Challenge," so that was my canvas!  I wanted to have a good portion of the background visible, so opted to go with shrinking my "Die Cuts."  This is what I did with the little ornaments and deer!  The ornaments were cut from white shrink plastic, stamped using Tim's stamps and Perfect Medium.  I then colored them with Perfect Pearls and baked.  Once heat set, I went over them with alcohol inks and blending solution.  The deer was cut from frosted shrink plastic, blended on Distress Ink, stamped the other side with Metallic Distress Stains using a snowflake stamp of Tim's.  I did add a little color to his nose and an eye.  All of these were coated with clear embossing ink and powder and heat set as well.  These were all baked in my toaster oven.  Added some red/white bakers twine for a more festive touch!


See the little baby snowflakes!
Hope you will join in with all the fun!  Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

This captures Christmas beautifully my friend. A stunning background and your little shrinkies are wonderful embellishments, texturised and coloured perfectly. I so love this.
We are due home Thursday. I brought a little pack of papers and some images with me so I have been making some Christmas collage cards which has been fun and given me something to do when the sun went down or when we have had a shower.
Take care.
