Today is the start of a new challenge over at Lia Stampz! This time it's "Shabby Chic"...a favorite of many of you!
For my project I decorated the cover of a Heidi Swapp wood album. I used this adorable little bird image called "Christmas Birdie"; it's a brand new release. You can find it at Whimsy Stamps right HERE.
I decided I wanted to make myself a "Blessings" book. I'm going to use it to record the many blessings I have in my life. Then, if I'm ever having a bad day, I can just open this book up and be reminded of how blessed I really am! :o)
I had fun coloring the background with a combination of Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glam, some Smooch and a stencil. Then I added a little bit of stamping, some diecuts, and the sweet little bird. He's been colored to match the cover, complete with smooched boots and pompom!
So there you have it...a brand new challenge! You've got until October 15th to come on over to Lia Stampz to join us. You could win an image or be the featured artist!
Oh, and just so you know...your names are all written in my new book of blessings! :o)
Here's a close-up look at the image. You can see some of the sparkle better in this one.
