Fa La La Any Holiday Challenge

Hi everyone can you believe that it is the last Saturday of the month. That means it is time for the Any Holiday challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room. This week the challenge is sponsored by "Melonheadz Illustrating Designs" . One person who participates in the challenge will have the opportunity to get one black and white or colored bundle.

I was sent the Christmas Carolers Colored set for this challenge. I decided to do a modified tent card to use as a decoration. Since my card stock with the glued on tissue paper buckled I ended up having to glue it down to a cardboard base. Although I probably could have used a steam iron before adhering it to the card base and adding my images. That is if I knew where my iron is. LOL!

I was going to airbrush my background but right now I have no idea where the adapters are for the different markers. It is going to be awhile before I get my house organized much less my playroom. I also did not know where my blender pads are for using my ink pads. Rising to the challenge I got out my soft pastels as I did know where those are. I took a black one and rubbed it over the card stock. I then took an eraser and erased in places. Then took a paper towel and rubbed over my piece giving me the variations in the night sky. After all the sky is never one solid color.

I adhered the church to the sky piece. Then added a scrap to the underside of the card base to add my light, bird and carolers.  I glued down wrinkled white tissue paper that something glass had been wrapped in. Then cut out my images adding a tab to glue them down with. I then added scraps of the tissue paper over the tabs to disguise them. Otherwise I would have cut a slit in the base and slipped the tabs in the slit so they would not show. After everything was in place I went ahead and added bling stars to the night sky. I felt like the piece needed  something as it looked too stark.

Thank you for stopping by. Do come back again! In the meantime wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
