I was able to knock out another gift for a crafty friend yesterday. I used a ton of challenges to keep that mojo moving – I’ll list them all at the end of this post. We’ll start off with a group pic
I used Henry Mouse with an ornament from Whiff of Joy stamps and colored him with Copics. He is colored in blues to follow along with a few challenges and to coordinate with the paper. Here’s a close up so you can see all his sparkly goodness
I added glitter to the snowflake on the ornament by removing the marker color with a colorless blender, coloring it with a white gel pen, coloring with a glue pen and adding some super fine and sparkly glitter. He’s sitting on some *snow* – Polar white Flower Soft. The mistletoe hanging from his tail has white opal liquid pearls on the berries. Looking at this close up, I’m realizing that I forgot to add the white flock to his hat…I’ll have to go back and do that! The sentiment is from Verve’s Holly Jolly – such a cute font, don’t you think?
The tin is decorated to match the card. I recycled an old tea tin to package up some extra buttons. Any crafty girl would love those, right? The snowflake is cut from sparkly foam paper and topped with an Ocean Tides button and white thread that also has a sparkly ribbon strung through it. The tag is cut from the Perfect Presentation Tag Set 1 file. I added a strip of the dp matted on ocean tides cardstock. The ornament is also from Holly Jolly and is stamped in Smokey Shadow ink. The sentiment is from PTI’s Fillable Frames #9 and is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed. A couple medium and one tiny jingle bell finish this little tag off. Hope you enjoyed my post today! Have a fabulous Tuesday! I’m off to squeak in under the wire on a few of these challenges!! ~lyss
