Hi Guys, I am posting for Emerald Creek today. Our theme for the month is Fireworks and Sparks. Millie here, certainly knows how to make an entrance!
I loved how the Three Star Metal Band Charm fit on her head and I just kind of ran with it from there.
I cut out my stars and embossed them using the new Peppered Chantilly.
My tag was stamped using the Fallen Blossom stamp and Jet Black Archival Ink.
I used Distress ink in Candied Apple, Fired Brick, and Festive Berries to color the tag. I spritzed on some water and dried it. I went back in with the Fired Brick Oxide over the top of the tag and spritzed a bit more. You can see a few stars peeking through here and there. I used the Tim Holtz Star stencil and removed the color using a baby wipe.
I colored some of the blossoms using my Chipped Sapphire Distress Marker and a waterbrush. The centers were all colored using a white gel pen. I added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Crayon on the edges.
You can't see unless you look really closely, but Millie has a long necklace in her hands. I embossed it using Charred Gold. I cut a slit above and below her hand so it looks like she is holding the flowers. The headband has some fun sparkly yarn in the holes. Obviously, Millie likes a bold and dramatic look.
