Blog Hop Day 4

Happy Thursday!!

Welcome back to Day 4 of our week-long blog hop
 with the Add A Little Dazzle crew!

Each day we've had eye candy galore for you, 
and today we have even more!! 

Today I had some fun with Christmas Carols and 3 Fri-Die sets!!
 Funky Round Tag, Linked and 4 Petal Fri-Dies are the stars of today's little show :)

Lots and lots of texture on this one!!
I combined smooth and textured cardstocks and stamped subtle backgrounds on each 
using VersaMark.
I cut the tag from wood veneer twice, and cut the center out of one so I could use it as a frame for the other.  I left the bottom natural and stamped the sentiment using Barn Door Distress Ink, but stained the top frame portion with Walnut Distress Ink.
Crochet ribbon dressed up the red panel edge but I wanted even more...
so, I cut the Linked die from Scarlet Red metal sheet and added that over the top of the ribbon.
But wait, there's even more!!  
4 Petal flowers cut from wood veneer and stained red, then more Scarlet Red metal sheet.
A little ribbon and jute rope finished it all off.

Phew! That's a whole lot of textures!
Next time I would use Memento ink when stamping the sentiment on the wood.
The distress ink is bleedy to begin with, but the wood really drinks it up.
I really like the homey feel of it and I think it all works well together.
