Red Winter Joy

Don't tell my work space that Halloween is tomorrow, because that poor craft desk is cover in all things red, green, gold, and sparkly. While today is a wintery post, tomorrow I'll share our pets' Halloween photo shoot that they enjoyed so much :) Can't wait to show you all how cute they are!

Lawnscaping Challenge this week is to be inspired from something in your Pinterest account. I found a lot of beautiful winter scenes, and was especially drawn to this one:

So my card mimics the bold red box in the center, with pops of snowy white, and I even added a woodsy background to get those twigs represented. I used Lawn Fawn stamps "Peace, Joy, Love".

This is essentially an emboss-resist technique using acrylic paint instead of distress inks. I die cut the rolodex card, heat embossed the sentiment and snowflakes in white, then painted over the card with red paint. Once it all dried (don't heat it to dry or the embossing powder will melt into the paint! Patience.) I rubbed off the paint from the embossed sections using a baby wipe.

The card was placed on a wood grain embossed background, added a little label tab, twine, and some enamel dots. I'm kinda likin' it!

And while we're on the topic... make sure to follow me on Pinterest :)
