Good morning everyone, I'm here today with some mid challenge inspiration from the Polkadoodles blog. The challenge for you as always is Anything Goes but for the team this time we were challenged to use red and green and to make something for Christmas and incorporate some paper weaving. Well, I've never done paper weaving before so this was new to me. Of course I'm on with making my Christmas tags so thought I'd try it on one of those so I didn't get overwhelmed. And here it is.
This first photo shows the paper weaving I did.
I weaved the paper and then used a white ink pad and some white embossing powder to add the snowflakes and snowballs. I then added some faux stitching around the edges with a white gel pen.
I then stamped the small petal stamps onto watercolour paper 6 times. I then got out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints and painted 6 petals red and 6 in green. I put them all together to make a Poinsettia flower. I added some yellow stamens in and then glued onto my take. I then stamped the sentiment and went over that with a red wash to continue with the theme.
I think I may have trouble giving this one away on a gift! I may give it to hubby to use on my Christmas gift, that way I get to keep it lol
Here is a close up for you.
Now pop over to the blog to check out my teamies fab makes and get some more inspiration.
