The big day is almost here and I hope you are all ready! I finally finished the last of my shopping yesterday and today I will wrap it all up! The dinner is made - LASAGNA and ready for the oven! If all goes well, there will be some extra time for COOKIE making! Onto my card and the final Christmas card of the year and the last lesson from the "Compendium of Curiosities." Linda saved the "Glazed Mosaics" on page 60 for the last CC2C and that makes 34 techniques! A big "thank you" to that loved lady at Studio L-3 for giving so much of her time and inspiration! You really do rock!
Tim's "Toy Soldier" and knew this guy would be used on a card for my wonderful husband. Almost any time I use a die that requires an "EYE," that hubby of mine will tell me that I should have used one of the googly/wiggly eyes, so baby, this one is so for you! The TS was cut from grunge board. The face, gloves and pants were painted with white acrylic paint, shaded with Walnut Stain. I added a little color to the face using Tattered Rose. The hat and jacket were painted using red acrylic and gold touches on hat, jacket, shirt, boots and belt with Tarnished Brass Metallic stain - love those stains! The background stamp is from Stampendous, inked with Peeled Paint and Festive Berries and I embossed that using Ranger's Black Sparkle, which has a great sparkle effect - trust me! You might be able to see a little bit! For the "Glazed Mosaics" which I can tell you about the Tim's technique, I will tell you that I adjusted slightly. I used a movers and shapers and glittered my foil! OK, enough said!
