Choices...Choices...Choices......

this is another one of those.....HOW DO YOU CHOOSE challenges!!! but do I have toooo....
Yes.....Says.....Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog.....

I choose a technique Tim used on Tag #10.....embossing acrylic!!


I used (4) 7.5 x 5 Clear Acrylic Cover by Zutter
Alcohol Inks: Denim, Stonewashed, Meadow, Pitch BlackMetallic Pearl and Silver
Alcohol Blending Solution
Distress Stickles: Forest Moss, Rock Candy, Antique Bronze
Ink: Snow Cap Pigment Ink
Stamps: Tim Holtz ~ Winter Sketchbook, Reindeer Flight
Texture Fade: Tall Pines
Die: Winter Wonder
Bind it All and 3/8" Owire

It was a bit tricky embossing the covers as they are rather thick. But when done, coloring the Acrylic with the Alcohol Inks was fun! blues on the inside....Metallics on the out!
For a WOW effect....I stamped the inside with Snow Cap Pigment Ink and the Snowflake stamps.
You will need to dry this....but be careful...you are heating acrylic!!




I cleaned off the trees with blending solution. I painted the inside of trees with Meadow and Pitch Black.
On the outside I covered the trees with Forest Moss and Antique Bronze Distress Stickles and accented the trees with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
I did a mound of Rock Candy under the tree trunks and created icicles along the top edges.
I cut the snowflakes out of Best Creation Glitter paper and adhered them with Glossy Accents.
To finish off the Luminary I used my Bind it all and Owire!!

There you have it......
