JayGee's NooK DT

Welcome to another week with  JayGee's Nook Design Team.  This week I am showing you a card using Japanese masking tape and the  'Retro Christmas' set by Practicing Creativity

For the long ornament I laid masking tape onto some scrap card, then used PTI's 'vintage ornament' die to cut it out.  I then coloured some clear rhinestones with my copics (V99) and put them on the ornament.  I am very happy with how this turned out, and will be using this method again.

Just a reminder about the challenge over on Judith blog, and check out what the super talented Joy has for you  this week too!

Stamps:  Retro Christmas (Practicing Creativity)
Card:  Pale plum, very vanilla, distressed dots (PTI)
Ink:  Pale plum, perfect plum
Accessories:  Rhinestones, copics, vintage ornament die (PTI), fine line satin ribbon (yum!), jute twine (dyed pale plum), corner chomper

Thanks for dropping by    xx Ange
