I don't know about you guys but I very rarely make myself anything. Well the challenge at JDE is the color challenge to use red, blue and purple. Also we are being sponsored this week by A Day for Daisies digi stamps. I just love this image called Growing in a Snowglobe. I decided to make something to hang on my office door, the finished size is 8 x 10.
|The black and blue paper bases were cut from a banner file which was a free weekly set from Designs on Cloud 9. The Scalloped border is a Spellbinders die with the Jolee's Hotfix crystals. The ribbon is stiff and sparkly and was very easy to stamp on. The letters are from a CTMH set called Chocolate Alphabet small.|
|I used Copics E00 and E000 for her skin and Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol for everything else, Stickles on her wings and center of flowers, I used PearlEx #673 interference violet inside the snowglobe (doesn't show in pictures though!)|
Ok so here is my "goof". I was almost done and below is the original border with the additional die used to cut the hearts and dots which was fine until I decided to to fill them with Stickles. I was so not happy with the result and mad at myself for "ruining" and almost finished project. I'm sure you've been there LOL! Anyway I decided to cover it with another scalloped piece and added the Jolee's crystals. I am much happier with the final result! Whew!
