Jenny Gropp - You are here!
I'm a whole day LATE with my post...I totally got my weeks mixed up! There just wasn't enough time in the days this week, so I pulled an older favorite card from my stash to share with you. I adore the silhouette stamps and this one is such a sweet and happy image! My shiny and sparkly is the metallic thread I used around the edges.
You can see the Copics I used here. I pierced holes around the edges, using a template to keep them even.... well somewhat even, lol! I used this fun metallic thread to stitch, yes HAND STITCH around the edge. It does take a little longer and usually I'm always looking for a short cut when crafting. But most of the time I'm watching Netflix on my ipad when I'm in the craft room, so I don't mind it taking a little extra time if I am watching some TV.
All of the layers were made using Perfect Layer Rulers, no nesties.. just simple straight layers on this one. I tied a little bow with the copper thread and glued it in the corner. I used a Viva Copper pen to add tiny little copper pearl centers on the flowers in the image. A few glittery pearls in the lower left corner to finish it off.
