Artful Times Challenge Blog - lilac & silver - with a wintery stamp

Well, I have found this amazing challenge blog with fabulous arty challenges called "Artful Times."

Click on the pic below to go to the AT challenge blog. 

This week, the challenge was lilac and silver - with a wintery stamp. A perfect challenge for me as many of you know I am addicted to the colour purple!

Here is my challenge entry. 

I stamped the Stag stamp on to lilac card using black ink and made a mask of the same stamp. 

I covered the stamped image with the mask then stamped the rest of the background with the Crackleglaze stamp using clear embossing ink.
I used lilac shimmer embossing powder and heated it.

I went round the edges with distress ink.

I then layered four pieces of strong tin foil and die cut it using the Foliage Spellbinders die to create the fallen twigs.

I tore along the top edge of the paper, punched two holes and threaded wide, lilac, satin ribbon and tied knots in each end.
