Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #9

It's the first Friday of December and the start of a new challenge at Creative Artiste We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. As long as you use more than one medium on your creation we'd love to see you enter the challenge. This is a month long challenge so you have time to create projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog. Thank you to everyone who entered Challenge #8 for November. The winner has been announced  on the blog.
Our theme this month is everyone's favourite
"Anything Goes"
and our sponsor for this month is FoilPlay.
Should the winner be from outside of the UK an alternative prize will be awarded.

I chose to make two tag cards to inspire you this month. Of course, I chose a Christmas theme as it's that time of year.

Both cards were hand cut from an A3 sheet of plain card into a landscape tag shape and then coloured with Pan Pastels. I made a stencil of dots using my X-cut punch tool and used that all over the card fronts with some texture paste, adding glitter before it dried.

I randomly stamped small snowflakes over the tags, Frantaged them and then added a matted and layered panel of paper to the center of the cards. The images and sentiments are all from the Wellington at Christmas range by Docrafts. The bobble trim is also from Docrafts.

The snowflakes were made using SB, Marianne and X-cut dies and the tree dies are from Sue Wilson. All got the Frantage treatment. I punched a hole in the front of the tags and threaded through a couple of ribbons before tying in a bow. I finished by dipping the end of a pencil in white acrylic paint and dabbing extra snowfall over the cards.
Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful projects created by my talented team mates including the new DT members. Remember to have fun and enter your "Anything Goes" mixed media creations in the challenge.
