Lacy Sunshine It's a Bling Thing
Still battling my stupid cold which has left me pretty ADD (sounds good to blame it on that, eh?) but I've finally managed to finish a rather giant tag for the Lacy Sunshine It's a Bling Thing Challenge. I had the hardest time deciding which image to use, especially since there's a holiday sale of Seasonal Digis going on at the shop and I desperately needed some retail therapy. I finally chose Coco's Holiday Ornament and made a mega tag because I had all kinds of bling I wanted to use. The fab swirl is from Prima and the gorgeous snowflakes from JoLee's. When you ask for "BLING", I don't mess around. The shiny DP is from last year's DCWV Winter magic stack mounted on textured silver card stock from American Crafts.
I've colored Coco with Copics, the ornament with a metallic silver Sharpie and added Stickles to the top, as well as her wings and set diamonds in her wings as well. I've flocked her boots and cuff and cut a tinsel pom pom in half for her earmuffs. There are pearls in her hair and diamonds in her eyes. I think I got the bling covered, don't you? Of course there are only a couple hours left for the challenge so I better get my rear in gear.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 38 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
