I've shown here before how I made a rose bush by trimming out my embossed Leafy Branch, today I used Basic Gray CS to make a tree branch instead! Our challenge today at Papercraft Planet for 12 days of Christmas (with me hosting this 12th day!) is to use 12 embellishments on a card! There are so many embellishments to choose from in Gina's store, this was actually a lot easier than it sounded! I attached 6 sateen flowers with glue dots that I'd colored with Copics, swiping outPale Pink and Peach from the middle of each petal, and then stuck a self adhesive rhinestone in the center of each I'd colored with my Yellow Green Copic. 6 flowers +6 rhinestones = 12! Sponging Regal Rose ink around the mat makes the little bird(also colored with Copics) just glow! They are so tiny, but I filled in the centers of the flowers in the image with my Green Copic atyou Spica to add sparkle and match the larger sateen flowers. Base and Mat are Basic Black and Blush Blossom.
Perhaps not so coincidentally, Gina K is also the sponsor for today's challenge and is giving away a Gina K designs stamp set to one lucky person who enters a project with 12 embellishments at Papercraft Planet today, winner will be randomly drawn! Be sure to have your card uploaded to Papercraft Planet by midnight CST tonight 12/10 to be eligible and use the tag 12day12 when you upload, good luck!
