It's a new year, so we're starting off with a NEW challenge at Taylored Expressions! Please play along in the Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge! What better way to create a calendar for the year. . .or even one to use as a gift for the next year! TE Calendar products are required to play, but TE stamps are NOT required. You can read all of the details on Taylor's blog. What's exciting is everyone who plays in 10 or more of these monthly calendar challenges in 2012, will be entered in a random draw for a TE prize pack valued at over $150!!! The KEYWORD for posting to SCS or other online galleries is TECALCHAL.
For this month, I used the New Beginnings set to create my January calendar page. The calendar products I used are the Desktop Acrylic Base and the Mini Tear-Off Calendar. I stamped the roses from the set in white craft ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I used Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks and rubbed it all over the roses. I cut the roses out and then sprayed them with a Maya mist and mounted them on the page with foam adhesive.
The sentiment was stamped in white craft ink and embossed in white on black cardstock. I die cut that piece using the Take Note Die 2. I used the Heart Border Die as well as the Rosy Posey Dies to embellish the page.
See what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created for today's challenge! I hope you'll play along!
