Good morning and welcome to this weeks Totally Ladybug Tuesday :-)
This week the team have been challenged by Octobers Guest Designer Ang who asked us to make our own paper!
Seeing as my heat gun was out I decided to stamp and emboss my background and then rub distress inks over the embossed design to create my pattern. Fortunately I had some snowflake stamps lurking and I set about stamping a random pattern before going a bit nuts with the inks. With hindsight I wish I had gone over the paper with a quick splash of glimmer mist as well, but I'll have to save that for another day!!
Here's my finished card
I played with my sewing machine again (for those that asked before it's a Husvarna Viking) and found a cute little snowflake stitch and used a light silver thread which is a bit pale to be seen in the photo, but looks good IRL. Some wide snowflake ribbon , some blue organza, a charm and a gorgeous multi-toned button finishes this card off.
Here's the paper before I put it all together
I used Snow Angel Nikki and Buttercup, coloured with copics with glamour dust to trim her clothes and diamond dust for the snow
