Quixotic Challenge #5 - Charms


Good afternoon everyone and welcome to another Quixotic Challenge. This week Martine has chosen the theme of charms.

I have decided to make a tag card as seen previously on the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog. I was needing a change from my usual square card. So thank you Marga for the lovely inspiration you provided over there. The basis for this card is a strip of cardstock 12 inches by 5 inches , scored at 3 inch intervals. Here is the link to the labelcard tutorial for those of you who might like to try this.

The papers I have used are all from Magnolia.The image is 'Snow Anya' and has been coloured with copics and lots of stickles. The snowflake charm, flowers and gem centres are all available from Quixotic Paperie.
The letters are gold alpha stickers which I painted with 'Brushed Pewter' crackle paint. I could go on about the little details but I will leave it there! If anyone wants to know something in particular they can just ask and I will share it with them!
Sorry the photos are not brilliant....my light tent is a little bit cramped with the long card! And not a jot of sunshine today...so dark and dreary.

Thanks for stopping by today. Today is the start of a new monthly draw at Quixotic Paperie Challenges and last months winner will be announced today.

I hope you can find time to join us in this week.
Back soon, Judy x

This is stunning Judy, love the colours and the Anya. May have to give this a go - I think it would be ideal for a giftcard holder also.
