My project for the blog hop includes this darling Rhubarb image from the new Rhubarb's Winter Fun set, which includes not one, not two, but three sweet Rhubarb images! I couldn't resist using Rhubarb holding a big 'ol mug of coffee...I know it should probably be hot chocolate but the truth is that I'll always pick coffee over hot chocolate! I used Copic markers to color Rhubarb and paired him with darling paper from Jillibean Soup. I also created some snow by free hand cutting a few snow hills and adding a bit of ink to the hills to give them definition. And since I opted to cut Rhubarb out to pop him up on the snow banks, I had to cut off the stream coming from his cup 'o jo. So...I used wires to create the steam...Fun, right? I added the sentiment with some faux stitching and the buttons, which are covered with fabric, are from SU!
How about a second card with a new second set!!?? This beautiful swirly snow image is from the soon-to-be-released Snowflake Flouish set. Isn't is divine? Not only do I love swirls but snowflakes and swirls...it's almost more than I can take! And how about the darling font used on the sentiment, love that too! My two images were paired with new paper from Little Yellow Bicycle called Winter Twig. To create my swirl image, I first stamped the image in VersaMark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Using Distress Ink I went over the entire embossed image, using a blending tool. The lovely black and white twine can also be purchased at Sweet 'n Sassy. So...are you ready for the next stop??
