Imagine, twice in one week!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I can't believe it was warm enough to eat the turkey dinner out on the deck. I don't believe it has ever been that warm. We've been so lucky.
I have a photo of the candle that Isabel will be doing in the Metal Art class on Nov. 12, 1:30-4pm. The pic doesn't do it justice, but I was having difficulty getting the metal to look like metal and the candle got lost in the translation ;-)
I also was able to make two cards in the last few days. The first was done using the Create-a-Card background stamps from Impression Obsession. I used the snowflake background, and stamped in white onto Kraft coloured paper. I dried it quickly with a heat tool, and then applied Colorbox Evergreen pigment ink to the pine bough stamp and stamped over the snowflakes. I then embossed with Rainbow Sparkle EP. I used a pine branch from our Stocking #2 set and again stamped in Evergreen and embossed in Rainbow Sparkle. I stamped the ornament in clear and embossed in gold. I coloured the ball with Tombow markers and tied it with a two-coloured ribbon. I then used foam tape for the branch layer and the ornament. I also turned the ornament over onto a hard foam mat and used the very large stylus tip from Marvy to give the rounded dimensional look.
For the Church scene, which was also an Impression Obsession stamp, I stamped in brown Staz-On and coloured the snow, moon and roofline using US Artquest white pearlized mica paint. The background and the church was coloured with Tombow markers. I used a permanent brown marker to do the branches in the trees as they are so fine and it would be easy to run over the lines and blur the colour. Finally I coloured the cross in a gold gel pen. I cut just the church out and mounted it on foam for a more dimensional look.
Enjoy the warm weather while you can!
