In the Woods

Hiya, all good? I've been rummaging through the unfinished objects, some of them will probably never see the daylight again. You know those you pick up and try to look at from every angle, squeezing your eyes in an attempt to find something propitious.

CAS on Sunday: Christmas
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers: UFO's (UnFinished Objects)

Materials used:
The UFO; Joanna Sheen sentiment stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with a mix of pearl and sparkly powder. A mask was cut out to create the slope, the Stampcape's fir image was stamped with Distress inks and the sky and the snow was sponged. Some splatters of water to get the effect of a sun and soft snow.

The finishing touches: The scene was cut out and the edges were coloured with Distress inks, the image was mounted with 3D tape onto Bazzill hammered card stock, some Tim Holtz jute string was added to give texture and softness.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated. I'm enjoying the weekend to the full, from household chores to some crafting. I might even find a nice Sci Fi to enjoy, some other UFO's to marvel. Stay safe and warm my friends!

Love and hugs
