Our Daily Bread designs on Oct. 1! The added pinecones are from a past release, called Sacred Season. I'm sorry the lighting is not good on this photo. I tried taking it inside, outside, in light, in shade...and could not capture the glitter on the snow! Anyway... I just wanted to show how easy it is to work with musical backgrounds to make quick fun gifts and decor. I'll have more gift ideas coming shortly... so I hope you'll be back for that!
I got the inspiration for this ornament from Pinterest. All I did was stamp with Memento ink on Gina K Ivory card stock, sponged generously with T Holtz Distress Inks. I cut the paper about an inch longer on both ends than it needed to be, cut my thin dowel rod to the length I wanted, sanded lightly, sponged with Distress ink, and I rolled the card stock around the dowels, adhering with Aileen's Jewelry Glue. It's not necessary to use anything that strong, but I had it and decided to use it. I don't have to worry about this baby unrolling! LOL! I stamped the pinecone images from Sacred Season with Memento, colored with Copics, added white ink, then added white stickles for a nice sparkle. The twine seemed the right embellishment for a kind of rustic feel.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Card Crafter's Circle - Vintage, Craftymess – Distressed, aged, Stampin With The Dragon - Music, nspired By - Photo Inspiration
That's it for today! I hope you all have a most blessed weekend!
