Hello! I'm busted, writing this in advance, so I'm not going to have a lot of conversation. I've also been the gracious recipient of DS's cold. Woohoo, huh? I did want to share a LO I created this week. It was primarily inspired by this week's challenge at The Color Room:
But I also loved the Tuesday Sketch at Frosted Designs:
Here's my take:
The first detail I'll highlight is this acrylic tag. It was also inspired by the Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs -- use vellum, transparency or acrylic on a project. It's a small piece of acrylic, but I seem to be in constant battle with my vellum. Just ask the other two projects I'm still working on! The tag does say "Pounds Tall." I do not currently weigh 14 pounds. I'm currently a size 14 -- a very big deal for me. Privately, I'll be adding my weight beside the acrylic tag. I think we can all agree that's personal enough.
I also had fun creating the frame around the photo It's a combination Technique Tuesday tile, paint, a layer of Glimmer Mist (Rip Tide), Distressed Stickles and these awesome stamps created by:
The chipboard butterfly is courtesy of a prize won on the blog of Crafty Sprinkles. I misted it with Glimmer Mist (Rip Tide) and covered the vines in more Distressed Stickles.
The beautiful flowers are Prima, of course. The butterflies are fussy-cut from the background pp (DCWV, Mariposa). I kinda figured no one would mind if I covered my shower curtain. It's a pretty curtain but....
Thank you for taking the time to read and look. I look forward to being able to pop in on many challenges tomorrow to catch up on other participants' work and do the same.
