Over at The Friday Mashup this week the challenge was to make a christmas project using non-christmas stamps and add a messy technique.
I thought this challenge sounded like so much fun, so I began browsing my stamps to figure out what to use. I came across my Reason To Smile set and figured the flower head could pass for a wreath. I stamped it in Wild Wasabi, punched it out with my 1 3/4" circle punch and layered it on an oval cut Designer Frame. I fussy cut three little flowers from that same set, after I stamped them in Real Red, then topped them off with rhinestone centers.
For the messy technique part, I ran a piece of white through the Big Shot using my Holiday Frame EF and then cut it out in a big oval with my Creative Memories oval cutting system. I dropped a bit of sparkle gel to a scrap paper, ran my brayer through it and rolled it right onto the embossed image. I like the way it turned out! I finished everything off with some Wild Wasabi photo corners with added bling and a sweet gingham ribbon.
Here's a list of my supplies....
