Hello! Only two more days to Christmas, and we have another lovely CSI case file. Don't miss checking out the wonderful inspiration by the DT and guests:
I scrapped some Christmas photos from last year:
When dry, a script and a dot stamp were silver embossed here and there on the background and it was splattered with just a little bit of Picket Fence distress stain (which had been transferred to a mini mister).
baubles die cut from it. They were embossed in three different folders and coloured with alcohol inks (shades of pink and pearl), wiping some of it off from the embossed parts. I used crinkle ribbon to hang them from the page.
Door by Karen Burniston (also see this project of mine). The door was die cut once from watercolour paper, and then the frame and other details were die cut again from mat board, mounted on top. I smeared texture paste all over it (same technique that I used on my Winter Wonderland house). The wreath were coloured with Brushed Pewter stain.
Behind the door, there is another photo. It would also be a great place for journaling.
The Fancy Frame was die cut from mat board, and the frame part was coloured with Worn Lipstick Distress Stain and coated with Glossy Accents.
I attached the swivel clasp with a brad, hitting the brad with a hammer to make it stick down firmly.
The lamppost was also die cut from mat board and got the same treatment as the door. A piece of mirror sheet was placed behind lamppost (inspired my December tag). I also added a bit of cheese cloth for extra texture.
Thank you for looking! I hope you will play along with us at CSI this week.
