New Year Card


I needed a New Year card for one of my friends in Australia, so as the theme on Tuesday Taggers is New Beginnings, and the theme at Studio L3 is Rusted Grunge I thought I'd have a go at both.
I used Alterations dies for the sign and the leaves, made the hanger "rusty" and sprayed glimmer mists on the leaves as a background.
The tickets are Tim Holtz and I added a bit of Inka gold everywhere.
It's a bit Autumnal, but I do like browns and greens!

Anne, this is a gorgeous way to start the New Year! I love how you used the rusted grunge technique on the sign holder, and the little tickets and fabulous layered background make for a lovely and energetic card. This is certainly going to delight the recipient! Thanks for sharing it at the CCC!
