I created this for the Magnolia-licious Highlites January Challenge and for the Roses on Paper Challenge #29 Wintery (create a wintery scene).
For this challenge, you have to visit Magnolia-licious Highlites for the template. Here is my entry for this challenge.
Stamps: Skating Tilda, Pond, Sentiment (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: LilyKate (Basic Grey), Brocade Blue
Ink: Memento, Copics
Embellishments: Lace, Three For You Punch, Mod Podge
I actually received a nice compliment from my husband (who supports my habit, but is generally not terribly interested). He said he thought it was one of my best to date. That was so nice. Makes it so worthwhile.
I got this stamp when my daughter was ice skating. She has since stopped skating, but I still just love this little Tilda. Isn't she sooooo cute?!
No, about this flower. I have mentioned in the past how much I love those little mini roses by Primas? Well, I wanted to figure out how to make them so I could have them in whatever color I wanted. So, I used my Three For You Punch from Stampin' Up!. I had to clip them a bit with scissors. I used Mod Podge to stiffen the paper. I then used my embossing tool, my piercing tool, and my fingers to form the flowers. I just love how they turned out. No I don't have to be limited trying to find them in the stores, and I have another use for my paper scraps. Yippee!!!
I will try to be back Wednesday with another project.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
