Give me Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress Ink and an ink applicator and I'm a happy camper. That's what first came to mind when I saw Simon Says Stamp's challenge to use one of your Favorite Things (tool, product, stamp). Add a couple of challenges to the mix and I'm a really happy camper.
On Day 4 Jennifer M. created a work of art over at Ellen Hutson's Classroom for the Feminine Twist on 12 Tags. You should check out those mirrored pieces she used - now there's one thing I don't have in my stash. I had to go with what I have.
So I took inspiration from Challenge Up Your Life's #84 colors
and Stamping Sensations "Treemendous" challenge and this is what I came up with.
You'll probably never see a reed bird perched on an evergreen bough anywhere but here! Or lilac snowflakes! But I've got the distress inked BG under a StazOn stamped piece of acetate (cool effect BTW, Jennifer), a bird, a branch and snowflakes. Even used a "Joy" sentiment. And if you look closely you might catch the Stickles on the flakes and birdie's head and the glitter CS for the bough.
And purple, lilac, teal and light blue? Check.
And a tree? How 'bout a branch - will that do?
Happy Friday, friends.
