cc233: pinecones

blog tag

My project today is for yesterday’s color challenge over on SCS – real red, chocolate chip and kraft.  i threw in a little copper too!


i am a recent kraft addict so i was happy to be pulling it back out! i used stamps from the same set as the main image to add some holographic embossing to the chocolate stripe paper.  the two flourishes are cut from grungeboard using a hello kitty sizzix die.  then i covered them with fired brick distress ink and a thick layer of antiqued bronze crackle paint….well i was being impatient and tried to speed up the drying process BEFORE the crackling started and so it did not crackle – however it did have an interesting reaction with the distress ink – the ink shows around the edges and even mixed into the paint a bit so i am happy with the pieces.

i added some copper into the mix on the background of the main panel too – copper mixative in the alcohol ink background.    then i stamped my image with coffee archival ink.  the acrylic squares are available at pezadoodle designs and the bottom ones are brand new – red with marbled copper veins, the top are chocolate sparkle.

i will have some new pezabling including holiday mixes available on my store site late this week!

i have another busy day of running around today as well as dealing with the person who hit my son’s car yesterday.  that poor car has been hit 3 times and always in the same spot…..



have a wonderful day everyone!

    Great job and the flourishes turned out fantastic. I thought they were real wood…and not grunge board.
