I'm back in the melting pot again!!!

Needed a horsey card for a 17 year old and thought I'd have a go with this again. Mind you I did have to re-do the head only image 3 times before I got it correct....the great thing is that the UTEE can be thrown back in the pot again when you are not happy with the result. Apologies for the poor was too late in the day for good daylight...on a bad day here we can have the lights on at 3 00 p.m. The wallet was made out of a sample of high end wallpaper which I lined inside with good watercolour paper stamped with yet more horses!

WMS Christmas Blog Waltz

Here is my offering for the Waltz.....
Base cardstock is from the Papermill and the green cardstock layer is also from the same source and it is the leather type of card. The cream layer is The Papermill linen and I've stamped the Merry Christmas stamp from that Secret Set. Attached a length of ribbon down the centre of the top layer and then stamped the star from the same set into gold UTEE...the impression came out well. As UTEE can be sort of dull I took the Krylon pen and put on 2 layers of gold to brighten it up. When still warm I cut around the outline and discovered the shape was close to the Spellbinders Hexagon! Made another red layer and edged it with a gold Krylon pen....a little bit of red bling in the centre...pop dotted the UTEE layer to the red layer....the edges needed to be streamlined a bit so a little bit of wired gold cord did the trick...just used double-sided tape around the edge and pressed the gold cord unto it. Then added the little knot of ribbon to cover the joining of the cord. Apart from the 'Stars' set this was the only WMS Christmas set I had to work with!
