Getting right to the chase because I'm so extremely thrilled with this challenge and I can't wait to give you the link to it, here is my DT creation for Our Creative Corner where the marvelous Marcy is hosting again this week and her challenge is to use Silhouettes!
Originally I had a card all planned out, but then came across this free groovy template for a miniature suitcase at Mirkwood Designs and decided that a 3-dimensional setting would be more fun for a silhouette and then went one step further and turned it into an adorable little Christmas tree ornament. I'm including all the links so that you can make one too. They are so super easy!
The template, as is, will make this little box which measures 2.5"x 2", it's the perfect ornament size! I just used white cardstock and wood embossed the parts. Coloring it in with Bordering Blue and Bliss Blue ink then aging it with distress inks in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. The pine cones are made from one TH Tattered Pine cones die and cut into three parts. The ivy, leaves and tree as well as pine cones were then painted with Gesso. Three cotton balls pulled and glued to the bottom of the suitcase where I've mounted the cute little boy and girl silhouette having a wintry sleigh ride together. I've spritzed the cotton balls with a water and glue mixture and then topped with fine glitter. All in all this took me about 30 minutes to make. How cute to have these covering your tree?
This silhouette is a custom made stamp, but there are so many wonderful silhouette images for free at the Graphics Fairy and Free Vintage Digital Stamps.
Please stop in to Our Creative Corner
