Phew...I'm chugging right along!
Here's my Altoids tin #11 from the second annual 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge happening over on Linda's blog, The Funkie Junkie.
There's still time join in the fun and be eligible for one of the prizes from the sponsor and Linda's shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique!!
I can recognize and admire and recommend wonderful shabby chic projects, but my flair doesn't exactly fall in this genre. So, for a little extra challenge to myself, I tried to make one little tin that meets the criteria. For those of you that are gurus in this arena, I'll leave the critiquing up to you.
Drawing my inspiration from Linda's vintage tag in hues of ecru, cream and white, I took away from it the expanse of the darkened holly leaves, the center flower as a focal point, lace, and the shape of the sentiment.
Isn't her tag just perty?
Base of tin is corrugated cardboard. 3 layers of lace overlapping each other. Handmade crochet flower and vintage button with TH greenery and embroidered leaves. The exterior edges are covered with braided 2 strips of white and 1 strip of cream yarn.
Thank you for peeking in on me :)
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
