Mirror, Mirror


Did you know that Mondays and Fridays are new release days for The East Wind?  Join the FB Group to find out all the scoop and share your fabulous TEW projects.  Here's my card with the fabulous 'Lucy Loo' Mirror Mirror.  Isn't she fabulous!?   She's colored with Copics in shades of purple to enter the A Step in the Dark Add Some Purple Challenge (or ATG as long as it's "Dark") and I was thrilled to find that purple DP from Recollections in my stash.


Here's a close up.  I've fussy cut her and attached her to a piece of mirror card stock that I've embossed several times with Utee, put in the freezer and cracked.  Kind of an errie effect, eh?  the one thing I'd do differently is cut your card staock the size you want BEFORE you do your heat embossing, because if you need to cut it to size after, some of the cracked pieces may come off.  No prob here since it's it's supposed to look old and shattered.  The sentiment was computer generated and popped a top a lovely ribbon so I could enter the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers "R" is for Ribbon challenge and make it "Girly" enough for Left of Center.

Just had to add the graphic from SOSS, they are always such a HOOT!


I'm also enterting this in the ABC Challenge "M" is for Monochromatic.  And speaking of challenges, The East Wind's new Blog challenge is Embossing Wet or Dry and the FB Contest is Something Out of the Norm.  Why not stop by and play along?

  3. Love this - and thanks so much for the cracked mirror info - obvious really, but I would never have thought to do it. It is the perfect effect for this image. Loving all the purple so I will put on my Step In The Dark hat and say 'thanks for joining the challenge, good luck x'. Think I will have to go and purchase this (and Lucy Longstocking)....well, I do have my prize discount code.... Another fantastic creation Donna - I told you that you were awesome!!
