Hi everyone and Happy Boxing Day - that is what we call Dec 26th here in Canada. Not only is it boxing day, but it is my Birthday!! woohoo for me. -- 29 again! LOL
It's been a very relaxing day as I guess our birthday's should be right? Bill and I took a drive this morning in search of some Snowy Owls that are in our surrounding area. We were able to spot 5 of them, what a beautiful bird. Bill took some photo's, not sure how close up we will be in order to crop them since they were quite a distance away. Looking through the binoculars they were gorgeous. I'll share them if they turn out.
So this afternoon I decided to work on some cards. My stash basket is empty so need to replenish.
I pulled out a new stamp set from Justrite called Sweet Posies.
I started by white embossing the image on some Tim Holtz water colour paper. To colour the image I pulled out my Peerless swatches and painted away. This is the first time I actually coloured an image using the Peerless, I'm quite pleased on how this turned out.
I then cut out the image using a circle die, but first cutting the stems up to where I wanted the circle to cut so the stems would hang over the circle edge. I then edged the circle using my Krylon Silver pen.
The image was then layered onto another piece of white c/s cut using the larges die from the spellbinder royal circle die set.
My card base is 5.5 x 5.5. Along the front edge I taped down one of the borders from Spellbinders scalloped borders two and ran this through my big shot. I did the same with the designer paper, and then adhered the dp to the card front. Cut a strip of matching paper 2 x 5.5 and adhered this to the left side then cut a .25 x 5.5 of the background paper and layered this onto of the stripe. Adhered some fushia seam binding ribbon starting at the top edge then brought it down behind the image. I then adhered a bow. Finished off with some sequins and added glitter using my wink of stella clear pen to the posies.
