LITTLE BIRDIE

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m currently visiting my daughter’s family in Japan. But, I realized there were a few projects I’d made from my most recent EBE Release that I hadn’t shared here, so I’ll try to pop in, when time allows, with a quick share here and there.

This little birdie is just so sweet and love how the solid/filler allows you to highlight his li’l cheek and wing! I have a thing for birds . . . Not sure why . . . I think it’s just that they seem so graceful and free. Unless they’re crows, buzzards or vultures, of course. LOL!

After assembly, the balloon was treated to a nice coating of Glossy Accents and allowed to dry—for some reason, lately, I want to Glossy Accents all the things.

And, I’m a sucker for those teeny tiny star sequins . . . Such an adorable accent! •heart eyes•

Hope you’re having a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!


MODERN CHRISTMAS WOODGRAIN EFFECT

I’ve been so busy working on some illustrations for future releases… trying to get ahead, which always seems/feels impossible. I’m so far behind, I can see my arse up ahead. Do you feel like that? Running… Always running…

So, just popping in to quickly share this sample I made a while back with a set that is retiring, called Modern Christmas. I just love this set because it’s a two-step! (The coordinating dies have already sold out, just FYI)

The faux woodgrain effect was achieved by stamping the detail tree (grey ink), in two rows, tightly together and rotating on the 2nd row, nestling it into the first row. The wreath was die cut first from white card stock, and then I stamped the solid tree repeatedly over the top (green ink), rotating and overlapping the image to get a really fun look!

That’s all I got for today before head back down to the salt mines. ;)

Have a great day—and weekend!
