Modern in my eyes (although my in-house critic used the BIG and very grown-up word 'contemporary' when he saw it). The blue is so like traditional 'Wedgwood Blue' - and I found it in the snippets folder:
- A6 pearlescent white card blank
- iridescent silver card, topped with a layer of pearlised white card which had been embossed using SU's 'Square Lattice' folder
- the tree was made in two layers, one using white pearlescent card and a Memory Box 'Winterland' tree die then the backing layer used the Wedgwood blue card snippet and the matching 'Winterland Background' die. I've had the scrolled 'Winterland' die for ages but only recently got the background die - that finally spurred me into using a die I'd always been wary of :) I can now see loads of combinations and uses for these - wahoo, money well spent
- the 'tub' for the tree was punched using SU's 'Large Oval', and the bottom trimmed flat
- sentiment is by Craftwork Cards, mounted onto the very last of that lovely blue card
- three clear sparkly gems in the bottom right corner
I'm entering this into the current Jolly Holly challenge, which is 'Oh Christmas Tree' this week. It's a new challenge to me and looks like good fun.
And it's also for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November, where it's always 'Anything Goes' - I forgot to add yesterday's card and don't want Mrs A to be out of a job this month as Guest Designer, so here's another one for you to comment on missus :)
Doubled up wiv me back here right now, but will add more to tomorrow's post about today's tree in reply to some comments already left. See you then - grin, I might be lying on the floor typing though!
