I started these last night and finished them up this morning. I tried my hand at making my own chipboard embellies. I was inspired by the challenge in Elsie Flannigan's book to try to make your own chipboard embellishments. I really like the way they turned out.
I used white chipboard to cut the primitive hearts and stars with my Sizzix. The flowers are cut out of this white, much thinner "chipboard". I used those little "envelopes" that you get out of the coin machines where you can get a big sticker or temporary tatoo and cut the flowers with my Whale of a Punch retro flower. Then I just filled then with my American Crafts markers and some brush tip markers my friend Ang sent me (Thanks, Ang:). I then outlined with my black Zig.
So, this was my little "project" for today. I had some time on my hands today since Victoria went back to school today. She had been home since last Thursday. She came home from school with a fever on Wednesday and had been out until yesterday. Luckily, it wasn't the flu, but she had been quite under the weather. She was really anxious to get back. Today is the last day before school lets out for Spring Break though so it was a really short week for her.
