The second Scrapmatts DT brief was to create a Christmas theme ATC. I love the range of different shaped bases available so I decided to use three different ones and decorate them in a similar style.
Pretty quick and easy design:
1/ Cover chipboard and words with gesso and let dry.
2/ Spray red and green dylusions ink from opposite ends, sprinkle with salt to get fluctuations in colour.
3/ Run a gold ink pad around the edges.
4/ Stamp versamark flourish design over background and emboss with clear UTEE.
5/ Heat emboss the amazing reindeer designs in gold.
6/ Adhere film strip and chipboard to bases.
The film strip was a bargin item I picked up from Reverse Garbage in Brisbane. I got two 10 meter rolls, one green tinged and one red tinged, for $4 each! So much cheaper than getting the Tim Holtz versions. :)
