Welcome to my little winter wonderland on a tin container. I'm so excited to tell you about the inspiration of this ornament because it has to do with our current challenge over at Our Creative Corner, hosted by my blog buddy Susan. This week she's asking us all to use Foil and Alcohol Inks!! You can check out Susan's and the other team members incredible makes here.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on the foil and inks as I created the sky background to fit on my Altoids can. This is regular cooking foil with drops of Stonewashed Adirondack Alcohol Ink.
The inspiration for this little corrugated cardboard log cabin comes from another challenge that I am combining with this one over at The Funkie Junkie for the 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge. Using a metal tin and foil seemed like a perfect combination. Below is Linda's 7th tag and I drew inspiration from the log cabin, corrugated cardboard, trees and the snowy scene.
The 12 Tags of Christmas challenge is also sponsored by the The Funkie Junkie Boutique and Linda would love for you to stop by and visit her. :)
I couldn't stop with just the foil sky so I drew more foil in by adding a foil roof on the log cabin with hints of Vintage Photo DI and drops of Pearl Mixative Adirondack Ink. The background trees are acrylic painted and then glossed with clear embossing powder, but one tree stands out with it's foil structure and inking of Meadow and Espresso Alcohol Inks.
While still wanting to add even more foil, I've crumpled up bits of it at the bottom, gesso'd it up and then sprinkled with SU mica flakes while dripping bits of Lemonade and Pearl Mixative Alcohol Inks as well. The finishing touches were Opaque powder embossed snowflakes, painted Gesso snow and Xmas Red Stickles and a burlap bow, OH and a little bitty wreath on the front door.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my latest Christmas tree advent calendar ornament, and are inspired to join us over at Our Creative Corner for the Foil and Alcohol Inks Challenge!
Please note, Our Creative Corner has a max of 4 challenges total; ours and 3 others.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping....
