It's Wendy's turn to set the Tanda Teaser this week. She has decided to go for a musical theme, so the subject of the card should be a Christmas carol or have music somewhere on the card. For my card I used the first day of Christmas as my theme, although I am now having second thoughts....Is this a carol or just a Christmas song?...I'm really not sure. Well no time to do another now, so it will have to do.
For my card I stamped the pear tree, in olive green Impress dye ink, onto a piece of paper printed from the Artylicious Decadent Brocade CD Rom. I then heat embossed the pears in gold ep. I tore a strip of vellum that I had printed with the verse in green to match the ink. Using a Versamark pen I picked out the pears and embossed them with gold ep. The pear was stamped onto vellum and embossed in gold ep before being coloured using UsArt Quest paints. The partridge was stamped and embossed in gold ep on brown card and then coloured with UsArt Quest interference paints. Pear and Partridge stamps come from the Tanda Partridge Set 1 (mini).
The base card was stamped using the tree and distressed in the same ink. The tags were cut out using Spellbinders' dies, these were embossed in a Cuttlebug embossing folder before being distressed with the same ink as I used for the tree.
Well I think that just about wraps it up. Hope you all find time to join in this week!
