Today's challenge is to use a monogram. I read the challenge description and turned to my DD and asked if I have any chipboard letters. She said no, and the brilliant child then said - 'but you could use your cricut to get a big letter.' DUH!!!!! What was I thinking? I obviously don't use my cricut near enough! I bought the paper doll cartridge this past summer and have had precious little time available on my Cricut if I did think of using it. My kids love that cartridge! I need to post what my daughter did with it for a school project...
I cut the 'L' and put it through my xyron upside down to get even coverage of adhesive. I then applied dazzling diamonds glitter. Holy Toledo that is one blingy 'L'!!!
I stamped the leaves on pearlized vellum and embossed with copper detail embossing powder. Then, I applied alcohol inks to give the leaves a little mottled colour. I used my cricut to cut the circles and crest as well. I figured while I have it out, might as well make good use of it for a change *grin*
stamps; Lovely Leaves (SU!)
ink; versamark (tsukineko)
paper; beau jardin poppy (bo bunny), bazzill brown (bazzill), carousel notes (SU!)
