The 10th day of Christmas challenge.

Sandie's challenge - use a chipboard frame....either a purchased one or handmade. Mine is cut using a Cuttlebug die.....I think it's called Concentric squares, it cuts a whole nest of squares. I painted it with metallic blue Lumiere paint.

My background paper is a torn piece of vintage music paper which included some wintery images on it. I coloured the 2 iceskaters with Tim Holtz Distress ink then went over them with a Versamark pen and embossed them with clear EP. I then gessoed the paper lightly so I could still see the images, when it was dry I sponged lightly with Tim Holtz China Blue Distress Ink. I wiped the ink and gesso from my ice skaters and placed the blue frame around them as a spotlight. Before I stuck the frame down I sewed the music paper to some textured white handmade paper (it had a snowy look to it!), and added lots of Crystalline Kindy Glitz over the stitching and highlighting the snow and the children's hats.

Added some blinged up punched snowflakes, some buttons and a stamped sentiment....I think it's a Stampington one from a clear Christmas set.....I'm too lazy to go check!
I did get the challenge for the 11th day done too, but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see's late and I'm making too many typos right now!
Thanks for dropping by and goodnight from me!
