Marti here - susana has been gracious enough to invite me to join her Design Team and i am just thrilled! we have been friends for some time and have always worked together - so it feels natural to be on board *officially*! of course i hope to do her proud and certainly hope y'all enjoy the projects i create!
This week Suzanne challenged everyone to use all blues and ONE neutral or metallic. well i LOVE LOVE LOVE me some blue, especially in the winter, so the onyl hard thing here was narrowing down WHICH of my ideas i wanted to use!
So here is what i settled on:
i am always pairing up blue and silver but today i decided to pair the blue up with gold and i LIKE IT! the 2 mats are both done with alcohol inks and then cuttlebugged - the top piece is Ranger Glossy paper and the bottom is silver duct work tape - i wanted to try this out but i prefer my tin foil over cardstock method. after embossing the top piece i went over the raised images with galaxy gold brilliance ink to bring out the snowflakes a bit more. it would not stick to the bottom piece :( the snowflake embellie is cut using the cricut and joys of the season cartridge.
My fairie is *Would you be my friend* from the Fairie Song Art Stamp collection Susana carries - i remember when she first got these in! She is not actually a winter fairie but it is pretty easy to make slight adjustments! i covered the flowers above her face with Polar White Flower Soft and the icy blue on her outfit makes me think of wintertime! The Polar White Flower Soft is WONDERFL for creating a soft snowy effect with almost no effort!
She is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black colored with Copics and then i painted her wings and dress with the gorgeous Creative Inspirations paints Susana added to her store not very long ago. These have fast become one of my favorite ways to add some instant pizzazz! the colors are just brilliant and they really pack some shimmer too!
so glad you took some time to visit us today! i hope your week is wonderful!
