ABAC #11 - Snow


It just had to be done, a tribute to all our snow this past weekend. My ATC uses the Tim Holtz mini embossing folder snowflakes on metal, edged using metal tool, and "low-lighted" with black paint. The diecut snowflakes are coloured with Salty Ocean and topped with Brushed Pewter. I used sticky ribbon leftovers and tied some coloured string round the middle. Various gems, brads and eyelets were added to finish. Hopefully this should fit the bill at ABAC for their challenge to use anything which "Ties Up".

Hi BJ. Just trying to catch up now I'm vertical and breathing (must therefore be alive!). Great ATC and I love snowflakes at any time - not the real ones though - bit sick of those now!! Hope all is well.
Glad you joined the challenge at Anything But A Card this time too.
