Happy Sunday afternoon. Thanks for stopping to visit a little while. We have a beautiful sunny warm afternoon here in our area. The temp was 80 - so was the humidity. I've been working on a couple of cards, and trying to get one finished in time to enter in the fabulous Rudolph Day Challenge over at Sarn's. I started out with a Madonna & Child stamp on some vellum and an idea which totally fizzled, so after 3 different efforts - I gave it up. (for a while anyway). Remembered I had the colored image used in the card I'm sharing today, so finished up a card using this little snowman.
- image previously stamped and colored with copics. Added some Glossy Accents to create a little icy look. Diecut with S/Binders Labels 11, smudged some DI Stormy Sky while still in the die.
- Sponged Versamark over the top of some blue textured Bazzil c/s (from the snippet box), embossed with a Snowflake EF, sprinkled Judikins Aegean Silver over & heated to bring up the silver embossing.
- Border is a snippet of dp, think it may have been Heidi Grace paper.
- Impression Obsession Snowflake die used on a snippet of blue glitter paper. This paper is quite thick, and even though I rolled through the B.Shot several times, I still had to fiddle with it. The die cut well, but the paper is thick. Should have done a few more passes in the B.Shot for a better cut.
- Sentiment cut from a small snippet, stamped, then heat embossed with the Aegean Silver EP.
- Blue rhinestones were a very pale blue, so I added various colors of blue copics to get a darker look.
This little guy is going over to Sarn's Rudolph Day which I would encourage you to check out, see if you might like to join in the fun. There's an awfully cute stamp to be won, along with some lovely entries to enjoy.
Since I have quite a few snippets on this card, I'm also entering the Pixie's Playground Week 83 play. There's a chance to win another Ryn stamp. I have to confess I'd love to win the Penny Black or the Ryn - or - not to be greedy...I just love both of 'em!
A friend has started up her blog once again, after a hiatus, so if you have time - take a look at the card she posted as her 'start-up'. Let me tell you, Pat does marvelously lovely work. Here's the link:
So that's it for me today. I'm hoping to finish up a couple of cards I have in the works. Maybe (gasp) even straighten up my stamp area just a mite. I'm trying to find one of my S/Binder dies that I have either put on the wrong magnetic mat, or else have it buried under 'stuff'. So enjoy your afternoon, whatever you may be doing, and stay cool if it's hot where you live. Again, thanks for visiting, and come again when you can. Hugs
