4th Day of Christmas

Hi everyone.  I am late posting this tonight.  Have had a very busy day doing laundry, cleaning my kitchen adn cleaning and rearranging my lounge room to make room for the Christmas Tree.  Hope to put that up tonight after I show you all my latest creation.  I planned on making lots of different ones and posting a pic, but alas, one will have to do right now.

I decided to do a mini calendar for the 4th day of my Christmas samples.  After all, we all need them.  I think they would make a great little gift.

To colour the chipboard numbers, I simply pressed them onto my inkpads, adhered them to the coaster and then added the crystal effects on top.  As you can see I didn’t wait for the Crystal Effects to dry and it has started to run to the bottom of the numbers.  After taking the photo I quickly turned it up the other way for about 15-20 seconds to even it out and now have left it flat to dry.  


Inks:  Purely Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery

DSP:  Bali Breeze

Accessories:  Crystal Effects, Lots of Letters chipboard numbers, 

The calendar I used was a pdf file I obtained online.  If you would like a copy, please email me.

Ok, I will be back tomorrow with another project you may wish to try.

Keep Smiling & Stamping,
