We've already had our first snow of the season here -- and it's been on the cold side since the month started! However, seeing all the fun tags that the FB group gals have been creating, sure warms this girl's heart! Be sure to drop by and share your thoughts and ideas!
It's definitely hot chocolate weather here.... I've had this file FOREVER! :) It's from MyScrapChick. I did add a small gingerbread cookie (from the library) for a little more interest. The snowflakes have been "painted" with Wink of Stella. I used a white paint pen to "stitch" on the circle beneath the snowflakes. The mug paper is from a retired stack from Stampin Up ... the rosy color was perfect to use as a background for this fun mug which was resized a bit.
The Frightful Flower from SimplyCrafty SVGs has joined this year's Halloween decor and I'm loving it! It's definitely worth the time to cut, color, ink and assemble. Here's my version.
Isn't it fun? The flower petals are hand painted -- well, I let the Watercolor ink from Poetique just run on some wet areas of the cardstock. The edges are inked with distress ink for a little more definition. Erase any pencil lines if you need to. I used them to create a basic shape for the colored area of the petals.
The face of our flower has just a little bit of inking and I did leave one of the pieces off (dripping blood).
I added additional texture to the leaves using the backside of a craft knife... inked the entire leaf using Distress Inks and a blending tool.
For the easiest way of assembling this project, be sure to watch the video here. Just scroll down the page for the video. TIP: Be sure to pull your embossing folders, inks and a spritzer filled with diluted mica for another layer of interest before you begin to assemble.
