I feel giddy with this one, hope you like what I came up with for the latest Tuesday Trigger!
World Card Making Day is just around the corner don’t cha know for all of us to get a head start on those Christmas and holiday cards. I couldn’t stand the wait – as you may have already noticed – and had to start crankin ‘em out right away. Here’s my take on the Fine Toothed Comb Trigger:
What do you think!?!? I loved the ‘comb’ part of the Trigger image but didn’t have anything that even remotely resembled the picture in my head. Not to worry – let’s give this bad boy a freehand drawing and see what happens! I grabbed my Ranger Embossing Pen and drew the ‘combs’ in the shape of a super modern Christmas tree and heat embossed with Zing! powder in a glitzy metallic copper.
Those embellishments? Everything but the kitchen sink! I started with the larger button style pieces and filled in with pearls, brads, a flower, sequins, enamel dots, gems, Liquid Pearls, and epoxy dots – ooh and a wooden veneer star on top! My tree was lonely so I closed off the side with an inked sentiment from Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards. I separately masked each word and inked til the side was filled with Hero Arts Field Greens, then SU Baja Blue, then Hero Arts Soft Apricot.
Here’s another look:
I really love the ‘12’ brad – a little subtle ode to the ‘days of Christmas’!
I was going for a vintage meets modern, whatd’ya think, does it work for you?
