Impression Obsession: Things That Fly!
I have to blame this on Mama Dini! I adore her new line and have ordered several of her sayings. The rodeo ones are next!!
I tried to find an uncommon use for my IO snowflakes. I LOVE to glitter *&^& up so I made myself take a different tactic. Snowflakes fly. Check. But snowflakes made of actual cherry wood? That's right!
I used wood print bronzed paper in the back, followed by random dp. Then, actual self-adhesive cork, followed by a distressed piece of paper and the three IO snowflakes, cut from Mixed Media 101 ultra thin cherry wood sheets. I stained the edges, then used a lighter stain in the middle. I added some brads and really wanted to write WANTED on the bottom, but no stamp and my handwriting was horrible. My cards take forever due to a herniated disc that makes my hands go numb. But, being a 'glass half-full' kinda girl, I see it as being one-up on those papercuts.
Fingers crossed the random generator picks me...I got some dkdesigns to buy!
