PRESENTS! at Shelly's Images ...

This week we are sharing presents at Shelly's Images blog!

Well, not real presents, but our creations using Shelly's image 'PRESENTS".

Here is my creation :

I paper pieced the image, by printing it first onto that fabulous textured metallic pearl paper, and then onto shiny blue paper. Both images were shaded using Copics, and then I careful cut out the blue ribbon and pasted it onto the pearl image. The image was matted onto a pale blue striped die cut shape (using a Nellie's Choice Multiframe Die). For the lace panel, I used a piece of my latest 'discovery" - glass security tape (the type you stick on big plate glass windows to warn people not to walk right through them!) I found this roll at one of my local stores and was so excited to see that it was pretty and lacy, and if stuck onto a piece of dark colour cardstock, looked JUSY like real lace, but much easier to use! The three flatback gems are my only embellies!

  1. Such an amazing project. And in true "Jen style" so many fun details to see. I love the transparent tape. It is so fun to find new stuff to use. And I absolutely love the embossing on the packages. WOW!
