I really thought the christmas card club theme was for this Sunday coming so I'm chasing my tail somewhat as these should have been made and posted last sunday. Sorry girls. Blame it on the Internet as it really mucks my timings up as to what day it it.
Anyway I have been doing some more little water colour scenes +using small stamps for the detailing and have made them into Shaker style christmas ornaments. I have made six but these are just the
first 3. It was Lorraine's turn to pick the theme and Shimmer and Shine was chosen so hope the glitter glue around the edges and on the scenery will count.
This one uses a Circadesign stamp called 'Forest 'purchased at the NEC on my recent trip. I have painted the background using Distress ink pads daubed onto an acetate block and picked up with a paint brush onto water colour card stock. The trees were stamped over with versamark and heat set using black embossing powder so that they wouldn't bleed when painting them and the background around. Clear acetate used to cover the front and large micro beads for the shaker element.
Iv'e used small blue beads crystal beads for the shaker element and little silver sticker for the stars.
Q. Now can you guess what I used to make the ornaments with? Here is a piccy of them taken sideways.
A. Good old empty DS tape spool rings (now you do keep all yours don't you!!!!) and covered inside and out with various Washi tapes. (I shall be keeping the tiny empty rings from these as well).
Now as I have used snippets I'm off to the playground and decorate a few of the trees by the swings. Might just have to call into the potting shed on my way back too so long as Parsnip is not on patrol!!
