Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. Wow can you believe we are almost at the end of the year! Where has 2020 gone! Have you put your Christmas decorations up yet? Or do you wait till the beginning of December? I always start in November as I find things get so busy in December & before you know it they have to come down again. So I like to enjoy it a little longer :D
Do you make your own decorations? With that in mind I would like to share with you my inspiration today for the Paper Nest Dolls using a non Christmas stamp called Ice Princess, you may remember this stamp from the previously released Princess Collection.
Last year I purchased some plastic domes from a craft store, got busy & put them aside. Well this year I decided it's time I did something with them. I coloured my image & fussy cut it. I created the background by cutting out X-press It paper into an oval shape using a die as close to size as to the dome as possible. I trimmed the sides & bottom till it fit into the insert of the dome. I coloured it with Copics, sprinkled gesso & added some star die cuts.
I have to admit, taking a photo of this was a little bit difficult because of the reflections. It looks better in real life, I promise ;)
