Today's challenge over at the Ribbon Girl blog is our regular Lovely Lili Challenge - lots of lovely Lili Of The Valley products on show over there today. I used one of my favourite Artpad images for my card
Lots of people have asked how I made my owl so .......
Print the template image on an A4 piece of paper - it's upside down because I scanned it upside down and I can't work out how to turn it round :)
Cut the body shapes and wings from stiff card or several layers of thinner card glued together. Cover each of the body shapes and both sides of the wings with patterned paper. I used a different pattern for each pattern piece. Cut out two tummies and four eyes, ink the edges of everything with walnut distress ink and use a fine pen to draw faux stitching around the edges. Sandwich the wings between the body pieces and glue together. Adhere the tummy pieces and circles for the eyes and glue two black buttons on each side. Punch a hole at the top and thread through twine tied with rusty jingle bells. Cover wooden festive shaops with paper scraps and add tot he lengths of twine
Hello, I have some very special and exciting news to share today ........................ Lili Of The Valley invited me to join their Design Team!!!! You would not believe how quickly I replied to their email and I've been sitting on this news for a few weeks because they asked me just before I was due to go on my holidays.
So today I am sharing two projects, the first is also my card challenge project for The Ribbon Girl blog which is to add ribbon and uses one of the upcoming stamp release images from LOTV - my first sneak peak as a DT member :o)
For this card I coloured 'Halloween' with my Copics and I used papers from 'Snow Princess' 8x8 paper pad
Martha Stewart border punch and lots of silver cardstock
I also created my own glitter paper by covering the paper with a glue pad and sprinkling Glamour Dust glitter all over it - in real life it is stunning! Anyone going to the LOTV shop can pick up the Glamour Dust from them as they have it in the shop but it isn't on the website
My second project is a gift box using one of the images from Artpad #33 Christmas Cuties - I just love these snowmen!
