another done from scraps card, the Ornament is from Impression Obsession. colored slightly with metallic inks. This is up on pop dots. the ric rac is vintage. the green dots along the bottom is washi tape. the sentiments from justrite. this is A-2 in real life.
PSX image/sentiment stamped with Memento, colored with copic markers. the dotted pp mat was run through an holly sizzix embossing folder. the sheer dotted ribbon is maybe may arts. this is A-6 in real life.
Something interesting I came across on pinterest recently... was this way to get skinny mats for your spellbinders diecuts. so the housemouse image was die cut with that size of labels 8 then I glued the image to the pp I wanted to be the mat, then placed the die over the top of it, traced around the edge of the outside of the die. and cut it with scissors. its not as "perfect" as an actual die cut, but I tend to do distressed things so often most people probably wont even notice.
This image was something I horse traded for way back in the bad ol days of Pay it forward image swapping... he's colored with prisma pencils. ( Sorry, I don't remember its name or who sent it to me anymore) the sentiments from an Justrite charms set, the tag was die cut with an Memorybox die. the edges have some yes, you guessed it colorbox fluid chalk ink cream brown along the edges. the brads from recollections. the lace and ric rac are vintage and sewn to the card layers. the pp is double sided Basic grey. and this ones A-6 in real life.
This house mouse image was rak'd to me several years ago, colored it at that time with prisma pencils (Thanks Lori!) Its die cut with an spellbinders die the edges have some cream brown chalk ink. sentiments from Inkadinkado. also die cut with a spellbinders die. the primitive star button is a craft store find, the hemp strings from walmart, the ribbons are unknown. ( the check is probably may arts but, could be offray) the sheer is generic, the gingham pp is from the scrap bin. this is 6" square in real life and too lumpy to fit in a paper envelope so will have to be boxed or hand delivered.
Sentiment's from stampin up.
One of my Christmas gifts this year was these portable lights. they have some HUGE lightbulbs in them and weigh next to nothing to lift, but because the lights are inside light boxes, I took my lightbox off the file cabinet near the window down and then just put up this memory screen for a backdrop. (to keep direct sunlight off too) So far so good, need to try shooting something in the middle of the night to see how these lights do in the dark.
