ATC and Tag

Playing with the Gecko Galz images yesterday, reminded me that they also have a monthly ATC Challenge.  You need to use their [free] images - that worked for me!

They had a few "background" bases, I used 2, and a few "person" images, I used 1.  I'm telling you, I am seriously having fun with the "faux" snow!  It gives such a great holiday feel to whatever you create!

I went on to join in [for a first time ever] the Altenew December Ultimate Inspiration Challenge.  They offered a free digital, so I used that with a fun spotlighting effect.

I really complicated this tag.  Rather then just making it a shaker, I cut out a hexagon shape [for the spotlighting], colored it [with Copics], and was going to use dimension tape to lift it up. I didn't like that look, so I ended up making it a shaker.  It would of been much easier to just color the actual spotlighted portion on the tag... oh well.  I ended up putting it on a card base as my friend reads, so now she will have a bookmark.

Because this is a really CAS card, I am entering it into the CAS on Friday Challenge #272, Black, White, + One Color.

  Thanks Challenges - I had a good day.

Thanks for stopping by~

Two pretty cards, Vicki! I like the sweet vintage image on the first one and the spotlight/shaker on the second!

Beautiful cards, Vicki! Your fun with faux snow is spreading -- a technique that does look inviting. Your second card with the spotlighted portion on the tag is great -- while you made it harder, you made it pretty! I love the dark frame around it
