Norman in Pieces

Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here. It’s Tuesday, so it must be my turn on the blog.

 I didn’t have any idea what I wanted to do for my post this week, so I started by stamping Hobby Art's Norman stamp with black Archival & heat setting with WOW Clear Sparkle embossing powder, then colouring with Whispers watercolour pens. As I coloured I began to get an idea, so I stamped the image on a C6 card blank, again with black Archival & embossed with the Clear Sparkle EP.

Next I cut out some of the main elements from the first image. I cut them as close to the borders as I could, then ran around the white edges with a black pen.

As I was doing this I wondered if I could make a paper bauble to use as an embellishment, so I die cut six scalloped circles from a scrap of red core’dinations paper & folded five of them in half.

Using Cosmic Shimmer glue I began sticking the semi circles to one side of the unfolded circle, layering them on top of each other.

I used four semi circles & glued the other side of the fourth one to the left side of the base circle.

Voila! A Christmas bauble with added glitter on the finished card.
