Hello everyone! 
Hope your December started off well :)! 

Time flies by and we are in the last month of 2017 already… saying it every year :). 

A new challenge has started at The Ton Challenge blog! Effie has created a festive mood board to play with for you.


I wanted represent the aurora borealis in one of the pictures using alcohol inks. After four Yupo panels landed into my stash box, I’ve got this panel. 


To create the background I colored a Yupo panel in Amethyst, Eggplant, Patina and Limeade alcohol ink and added a bit of Pearl Turquoise metallic acryl. After the Yupo panel was dry I stamped the tree silhouettes from Mountains on the panel using alcohol based black ink.  I cut the front panel with the shaker window using my cutting machine. I cut it once from a panel which I made with white cardstock and Adhesive Glitter paper (glossy fine transparent) and again from some purple fun foam. Before assembling the shaker card together, I heat embossed the sentiment from Folk Art Christmas Tree set in Rose gold embossing powder on vellum and cut it in a curved strip. I glued the sentiment strip on Yupo panel and assembled the shaker card. I used flower sequins from Violet Sprinkle Couture Mix to fill the shaker. 


The ballerina from Holiday Ballet  was heat embossed in Rose gold, colored using Zig brush markers and cut with the coordinating die. I added crystal Stickles here and there for some sparkle on her. I adhered a strip of rose gold glitter tape onto the card front and mounted the ballerina. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hop over to  The Ton Challenge blog for more inspirations and challenge details! There is as always one $50 gift certificate to win!!!
