Inky Impressions Design Team Call...

I have been an avid fan of Crystal for some time now and she is the Senior Design Team Member for Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps. She posted a Guest Design Team Call! Click here for all the details! One of the criteria for trying out for the position is to play along with the challenge of creating an ornament. I don't own any of their stamps bummer I know but I enjoy gazing upon them non the less. Here is my creation:





I think this turned out quite nice,believe me I started over so many times it feels good to finally be pleased! I used Calliope Ketto image and colored her with my Prismacolor markers. I printed off "Fairy Christmas" (I couldn't resist!) not sure of the font. The black frame is Basic Grey, I sanded off some of the black down to the silver for visual interest. I added a layer of acetate cut with my Cricut using the Celebrations cartridge and then embossed using Swiss Dots. I suppose I could have stopped there but I had an urge to go on like always and backed up the project with Sweet Leaf card stock which is my favorite Close To My Heart Green! I'm not sure if Calliope is carrying a purse or if that is an ornament I do know I added some dots of liquid glass and glittered that tree up as well as the others. Finally which I should have done prior to affixing the acetate I managed to add the ribbon which also happens to be from Basic Grey. I still have on more project I need to complete in order to try for this team, you have until the 24th to get your submission in! Also Crystal Is has some AMAZING Blog Candy up for grabs go see for yourself! I hope you enjoy your Wednesday! Beth aka BR-T
