A Gift

Happy Thursday!  I have been busy running around trying to finish up a bunch of stuff for work and at the school the last few days, but took some time out to play the other day.  Aileen calls it ‘ creative procrastination’, I love that phrase!


A close up of the image.


I started this not really knowing what it would be, I just wanted to play with glitter and foil!  I ran the red foil cardstock through the Cuttlebug shiny side down.  I then used a glue pen to fill in the snowflakes.  Once the glue was dry I added the glitter.  I decided to run with the red and green and matted in onto green cardstock and added matching green ribbon.  I stamped the TCP image with Versafine and coloured it in with Sharpies and then went over it again with Spica glitter pens for even more bling!  I then used liquid glass on the red bow for a little more dimension and liquid applique on the pom pom before matting and pop dotting it onto the card.

Paper:Bazzill, Red foil  Stamp: The Cat’s Pajamas  Ink: Versafine  Other:Sharpies, Spica pens, Cuttlebug, Satin Ribbon, Liquid glass, Liquid applique, Glitter Ritz, pop dots.

I was asked a little while ago how I photograph silver or metallic paper.  I use this for all my pictures, otherwise I don’t do anything special.  I hope that helps.   Well I’m off  to get some more house work done and maybe play a little bit!  Thanks for stopping by!
