I just remembered that I had a card to post for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge that I made on Friday after the challenge was posted! Oh well at least I am still on time :)
It's another fab sketch this week so of course me loving sketches, I just had to play along.
I had to scan this one and you can hardly see the acetate snowflakes but just look for the brads and you can imagine what it looks like irl lol.
I have no idea who makes this paper but I got a 12x12 sheet of it at my local craft store for 49p!! Think they must of made a mistake with the price because I have never bought a 12x12 from there that has cost me under £1. It's a thick quality paper too so if I go back to get more, they will probably be doubled in price.
I've had this image coloured for ages but have never used it because the ink has run a bit as it was stamped in stazon and I used Copics to colour but it doesn't look as bad as it does in this pic, think the scanner has just made it blurry. Anyway I used it and it's stopping right where it is.
I used one of the Nestie shapes Heather cut for me (I so need to get more nesties of my own!) but I only had the one size so , I traced around it onto a piece of card with a quickie glue pen and covered it in sparkly embossing powder and heated, then cut the label shape out using the embossing as a guide, and there you go, a home made embossed label shaped mat :)
The big snowflakes are just some old stickers I had and I stuck them onto card abnd cut them out so I didn't need to stick down the edges. There is acetate snowflakes on top of them and also some on their own and I covered them with Twinklets (Bev my addiction to Twinklets is all your fault!!!) and added a snowflake charm. I used a strip of holographic kind of paper and put some sparkly lace from my stash on top. I think the sentiment is a Dovecraft stamp. It was one I got last year in the £1 bin at my local craft shop.
I wish the twinklets showed up better because they really are pretty, although I found them a nightmare to stick on. Well not stick on but getting them to stay on. Any suggestions?
That's it from my tonight. I think I will be off to bed in a bit because Chiara fell asleep ages ago. At last a normal sleeping routine for both me and her :)
