I've been remiss in my participation with the Jingle Belles challenges, so this evening I tried to make amends. The current prompt is Fa-La-La-La-La, and they asked us to make a card that either incorporates music, is inspired by a holiday song, or includes a holiday song title.
I started out by trying a new technique ala Lisa Spangler, wherein she dry-embossed washi tape! I KNOW! And I did it, but that piece didn't make it onto this card, so you'll just have to wait for it. What DID make it onto this card was a schnitload of Webster's Pages stash. Lookie:
First, when I thought I'd still use the embossed washi tape thingie that's not shown here, I stamped some Hero Arts circles onto a chevron paper from the Heaplet. The music circle would save me for the prompt if nothing else music-related made it to the card, and the red snowflake stamp matched the red that didn't make it to this card. Work with me here, people. Stamping is HARD!
Once I discovered there was music printed on the fabric tape, it actually started to come together in spite of me. Here's a little detail of the schtuff:
Truth be told, I wanted to be like Lauren and pile on a whole bunch of stuff, but I still can't do that. It looks fabby when she does it, but it looks over-done when I try, so I stopped here. I did go back and distress the edges of the chevron piece to help age it, but that's it.
Now I need to go back to the embossed washi tape and do something with it, or it will end up in the UFO pile. Can't have that, now can we!?
Thanks for stopping by!
