Welcome back and get ready for some amazing inspiration. Today I have a special quest here for you and it’ Christine Drogt, the owner and brain behind Create A Smile company.
I feel so honored to have the opportunity to be with you at this wonderful time of the year. I’ve always been a Hero Arts lover and as a former DT member of A Blog Namen Hero I feel that I have a strong relationship to this project and to the girls behind ABNH.
Here’s my creation for you:
I got the Hero Arts Christmas Crystals last year and never had a chance to use them – this was the perfect trigger-moment. I took them out and played with them – tried different coloring techniques and ended up with a bunch of stamped, colored and fuzzycut crystals. They’re so much fun!
These three were colored with Zig Clean Color real brush markers and embellished with a thick layer of glossy accents (hard to see on the photos).
For the background I used some picket fence distress paint over a Create A Smile stencil and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I added a little detail by scoring a frame around that panel – easy but with a huge impact. Some twine to hang the ornaments on was the last thing I added. Different colors, textures and shapes make this card what it is. 🙂
Have a great Christmas time
And now on to my part of this post. This vibrant green card from Christine made me go bright with my background, but on top of that I used craft cardstock tag with white heat embossing and some water colouring.
Since I was making a tag, I made three more 🙂 Stamping them all at once and then heat setting the powder all at once it was super fun and quick.
I hope your December has started on a good note and I wish you and your closest ones peace and joy this holiday season.
