4/28/22 DT Favorite at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!
Hi friends! A big Happy Tuesday to you! I hope you had an awesome weekend and your week has started off nicely! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #43 – Anything Christmas Goes! I’m sure you all remember that Ed and I rescue cats and kittens and our current count is 18 – 11 inside and 7 outside. That said, we haven’t put up a regular Christmas tree in a few years, and we have a small one I made with my Scan N Cut that we put up high and out of reach along with a few other decorations!
I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green, Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green and Stardream Metallic Antique Gold cardstock. Using a fan brush, I splattered the green pieces with white acrylic paint mixed with a tiny bit of water spritzed from my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer to resemble snow.
I assembled the Christmas tree, and added an Eyelet Outlet Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to the star on the top. I then added Eyelet Outlet Green, Orange, Pink, Blue and Purple Pearl Bling to the tree along with a red bow.
And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! Definitely a fun little decoration to add a bit of festive cheer to our living room even with 11 feline kids running about! ;)
