Just Add Christmas
Over at Just Add Ink this week, it is time for challenge #43, and the challenge is to Just Add Christmas. Not such a hard challenge at this time of year!
My colours are a bit out of left-field for this project, but I am happy with the overall effect:
List of Ingredients:
Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White and Peach Parfait (all SU)
Ink: Poppy Parade Classic Ink (SU)
Stamps: Trees With Trimmings (PTI)
Accessories: Sugar Plum 8x8 Patterned Paper (PTI), Mistletoe Ribbon Originals (SU), Stocking Prints Die (PTI), Orchid Fine Cosmo Stampin' Glitter (SU), Violet Pure Wool Felt (Felt on the Fly), Red Glass Seed Beads (Miscellaneous), Dimensionals (SU), Mini Glue Dots (SU) and Tombow Mono Adhesive (Penwa).
I just sprinkled some of the Orchid Fine Cosmo Stampin' Glitter onto the Violet felt and kind of worried it in with a paintbrush. There is no other adhesive holding it on. The glitter just kind of sticks in the fibres of the felt. Of course if you went and gave it a good ol' scratch it'd all come off...but who is going to do that? It's not a scratch and sniff card!
The red micro beads are stitched along the top of the stocking. I was going to stitch them all over, but they were a tad on the fiddly side (understatement of the century)...I am glad that I didn't because I really like how the glitter looks on the felt!
Still raining and raining here. The garden is exploding out of all the beds, and I only go out there with a flame thrower...I'm worried about triffids ;-).
