As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

IDIC challenge #61

For the challenge at IDIC challenge blog, I chose an image from Robin's Fetish, Christmas Trees.

To make this I used a piece of white cs cut to 7"x10".  I scored it at 5" and folded. This is my base card. I mounted a piece of blue cs (unsure of the company, as I get it in bulk from my LSS (love Art Tech Supplies in Greensburg, PA!) cut at 4.75"x6.75".

I stamped the background with the itty bitty background stamps from The Angel Company. Stamped it in silver (Colorbox pigment) and embossed with "Snowflake" by PSX (sorry guys, I believe they are not around anymore). Then, looking at the background it didn't seem to have enough sparkle for snow! So...I sprayed the entire background, and it was saturated by the time I was done, actually made the background ink colors start to blend, and I thought it looked a bit like a snow storm! I used Opalescent Spray Glitter by FloraCraft (again, not sure if this is still made, as it was in my stash for quite a while!).
I printed out my digi from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps. It is the Christmas Trees. I colored them with my copics (still loving them!!!) and sprayed the top and bottom with the same glitter spray. I created the sentiment on OpenOffice and printed it out in two lines. Sprayed it with the glitter spray also.
I really wanted to have a clean, crisp looking card. I love the Christmas Trees, and can't wait to use them again...I have a Christma Project in mind for them....keep watching, you may see these trees again in the near future!
Thanks so much for looking! And please, don't forget to check out the projects on my fellow IDIC challenge DT! All their blog addresses can be found on my sidebar!
