This week’s Ways To Use it Challenge on SCS was to use some BLING! I love bling but tend not to use too much. Again, I was a little stingy on the bling-factor but I’m happy with the project!
I went shopping the other day and these large clothespins were on sale! I got 2 for $4! So I bought two packs. For this one, I knew I wanted to do a holiday theme so I started with my Wintergreen DS paper. It is just so beautiful. I adhered paper with just a glue stick (but lots of glue) and sanded off the edges. The back side has the opposite papers on the top and bottom.
I added the letters ‘j’ and ‘y’ from my chipboard I won at Convention. I covered them in white craft ink and then heat and stick powder and then dazzling diamonds. I have to say, I thought using irridecent ice EP was great but this is WAY better!
For the ‘o’ I stamped the small snowflake from the Snowflake Spot in Sage Shadow and then the smallest one in Always Artichoke right overtop. I then used my Versamarker and heat and stick and DD as before. I punched it out with my circle punch and mounted it on an artichoke circle. Lastly, I added an Ice brad in the centre. The letters and circle are mounted on the pin with dimensionals.
Okay, only a couple more challenges to go this week….. But I don’t know if I can stand my desk looking like this for many more days…..
