February is upon us and January is in the rear view. I’m glad there will be an extra day in February this year, because I need it! (See previous post, lol.) Here’s to the turn of the calendar:
- Stamps: Lovely Lilypad (SAB 2020), Artisan Textures
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Lovely Lipstick, Seaside Spray, Pear Pizazz
- Accessories: Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, White Craft Ink, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wink of Stella, paint brush
I wanted to use the embossed image technique for the Lilypad, but I wasn’t happy with what I was coming up with using the Blender pens, the Aqua painter, or the Stampin’ Blends, so I pulled out the actual, bona fide, genuine article – the paintbrush.
I’m not trained by any stretch of the imagination, so this was absolutely trial and error, but I had a great time and I’m happy with the results so I count it for a win! A little Wink of Stella gives it a little shine.
