I made these baubles last week for the watercolour challenge and even though I placed them every which way with half a dozen sentiments, nothing seemed to work and in the end I gave up.
This week the challenge for 52CCT is a sketch:
I stuck them down and here it is:
After promising myself that I wasn't going to buy any more craft stuff I bought two magazines last week and these baubles came with one of them.
I embossed them in silver then filled them in with a wet brush and added some green brusho powder and moved it about with the wet brush. It makes such pretty patterns.
As two of the baubles don't have much definition around the edge, I inked with a little Esperesso on a sponge.
I stamped the bows, drew on the lines (which are straight) and added the gems. The sentiment is from a Joy Crafts set.
I think I've been a bit distracted recently maybe that's why the inspiration isn't coming. Isn't it strange how sometimes you can make dozens of pretty cards and other times they all go in the bin?
I've got a week off now. We are doing some work to improve our kitchen which means nothing is where you think it should be just now. Hopefully by the end of the week there will be some development. Hoping for some days out too!
