I tried to get a good picture of this so many times that I finally gave up. You get the idea though... I really struggled to come up with something different (for me anyway) for this week's OCC challenge which was to add something clear to your project. You can find challenge details HERE. I found these little votive holders and mocha scented candles for dirt cheap a while ago, and decided to use one for this CLEAR challange. I used the solid and outline hearts from MFT's Heart's Galore with Blazing Red Stazon ink to stamp the red hearts on the glass. Then I used White Craft ink on the outline heart and stamped on top of the red. I cut out the paper hearts with my Nestabilities on Bella Rose DSP on top of Riding Hood Red cardstock. The sentiment is also from MFT's Hearts Galore. I masked the stamp so that I could split it into 2 lines to fit inside the small paper heart. I applied sticky tape to Riding hood Red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and adhered it to the glass, and topped it with the paper hearts. I then used Liquid Embroidery to put the little white dots on the top and bottom of the glass. Cute!
It's New Year's eve day. It's snowing here in central NJ,and I love it. 2008 has been a whopper of a year - some big challenges, and some great gifts. I wish you and yours a great start to 2009 and a peaceful year ahead.
