Good morning everyone! First things first, we have a winner in the comment game! On the post of Nov.22nd we had over 100 comments so I randomly drew out number 12 which corresponded to Vee Cassidy's comment. Congratulations to Vee! Just email me your postal details to confirm and I will post off your prize to you. Just to let everyone know, since I have been pre-scheduling my posts the announcements of the winners may lag behind the actual post by several days. Don't worry, though, I am keeping track of it and since the comments are time stamped. it is very easy to go back and check!
As you can see, I am going through a teal phase. Teal is just such a soothing colour I think, you may have to endure more of it! I embossed the background using my fretwork mask. Since I wanted to do a background that is larger than the mask size, I cut one edge off the mask. Now I can move it and line it up to do a larger area and it won't leave a line. In essense, you can make the background any size you want. I cut three sizes of the Labels 22 dies and added the matching Nestabling in the black rhinestones. It's a bit much, I know, but it's fun! I cut one of the fancy tags in aqua and cut it in half and added to either end of the largest Label 22 die. It has those "holding hands" swirls that are so versatile. I added a messy bow out of the teal vintage ribbon and a black organza rose for the centre. Two decorative pearl pins were just calling out to me to be added to the bow, so, of course, I had to oblige! Lol A bit of piercing a round the edge and we are finished. What do you think? All for now, Sue x
