Naughty or Nice challenge!
While the current Jingle Belles Holiday Leftovers challenge is still on, I decided to use up my own stash of leftovers a little bit more. Lots of bits and pieces went into this one!
- the snowman and the bird, stamped and die cut at least a year ago at Emily's house
- the sky panel, from when I mopped up some leftover distress inks onto a piece of watercolour paper a few months ago
- the snowhill, which was a scrap I had spread some leftover embossing paste plus glitter on, again last year
- the frame, die cut several weeks ago (also at Emily's)
I hadn't coloured my snowman or bird, so that was done today, as was adding the woodgrain texture to the frame. I also added the notes, to give the bird something to say. The sentiment was a happy accident — I stamped it in blue on white, then accidentally grabbed my white embossing powder instead of my clear! So I stamped and embossed it again, but then thought, hmm. So I sponged over the white embossing with distress ink, and liked it much better than my original plan.
My little bird qualifies this for the current Merry Monday challenge! And I will also add this to Simon Says Stamp's current Anything Goes challenge.
