Sugar and Spice
I am sure you know by now that I love doing the House Mouse Challenges. Since they are on for two weeks, I really don't have any excuse. Well the challenge this time is called Sugar and Spice,and Everything Nice. Let me tell you, I went over and over my selection of stamps and almost gave up. I looked one more time and realized that I had a new stamp hiding on the corner of my table! I just altered it a wee bit to fit my needs.
The stamp I used is called Balanced Diet. I created little labels for the bottles to say Sugar and Spice. My designer paper is from the My Minds Eye, Vanity Fair collection. The image was stamped with Versafine onyx black and embossed with clear detail powder. It was then cut and layered with classic oval Nestabilities. After coloring with Copic Markers, There is Crystal Lacquer on the bottles and they are sprinkled with a fine, fine glitter. I added a pink crinkled ribbon and bow, with a Prima rose to embellish.
My inside sentiment will read You Are So Nice! I kept it simple. It always makes me feel so good to finish a project that I wanted to give up on.
I hope that wherever you are, that the weather is as pleasant for you as it is here in PA. We expect our first dose of 70 degree weather tomorrow!
