It's Sweet

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

I've missed this little stinker :) The Pun Fun set was a must when I first saw its debut last year, but it has definitely collected its share of dust, so I decided to shake it off and play a bit. I used my Big Shot to kreate a Basic Black scallop circle card using the Scallop Circle die and then ran a small piece of Pink Pirouette through with the die again to kreate the bottom layer. I used the small flower from the Priceless set to randomly stamp on the Pink Pirouette with Versamark and then heat embossed with White Embossing powder. Then I centered my Word Window Punch on the Pink Pirouette layer. Sponged the edges and around the punched opening with Rose Red ink. Adhered that layer, offset a bit, to my Basic Black and then inked up my sentiment from my Pun Fun skunk in White Craft ink. Eyeballed it and stamped it in the punched opening and then heat embossed with White Powder again. Needed a bit of sparkle, so two Circle Ice Rhinestones got the job done. Black Gingham ribbon hides the seam and my little skunk gets inked in VersaMark on Whisper White and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. She comes to life with my Aquapainter and some ink. TIP: When watercoloring on cardstock vs watercolor paper, be sure not to saturate the paper as it will warp/ripple. The edges also get sponged with Rose Red and Ticket Punched and then layered on a piece of Rose Red. I stink its sweet :)

For now, go kreate

We must be on the same wave length. I just looked at the scallop circle in the holiday mini (with the bird die cut) and thought "I want to do a half and half version of the scallop circle." Great job! M
