Country Barn in Suring, WI; and
The Cracked Cup in Gillett, WI
Country Barn is a NEW retail store that has a huge variety of home decor and gift items! I just got a bunch of birthday gifts purchased this weekend!! The Cracked Cup is a local coffee shop that has a wide variety of handcrafted items for sale....so while you stop in to get your cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa you can stop and browse the amazing items for purchase! I am so thankful that these two owners have decided to display our projects for sale, I'm hoping this turns out to be a very successful adventure!
Now onto some crafty fun.....Today is another Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Day! YAY...this challenge was sooooo much fun! For this week's challenge we would LOVE to see your creations featuring STARS....and why not add some bling in there too, as stars love to twinkle!
Kathy of Distressed Stamper, (her work is so gorgeous)! Thank you so much Kathy for the inspiration! The plaque was first painted with a mixture of pink and white acrylic paints. Papers are from the Prima Sweet Fairy collection.
This features the cutie pie Wish Upon a Star from the Sample Edition #5 Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. She is from an older collection, but I never got the chance to ink her up and knew she would be PERFECT for this challenge! Of course she was colored with Copics, and accented with pastel pencils, cut out with a SB circle and popped up on a SB scalloped circle which was then accented with 3mm white self adhesive pearls and layered on top of cheese cloth.WOC flowers and arrangement consists of: 35mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Wild Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, 15mm Roses, Hip Rosebuds, 8mm semi-opened Rosebuds, Gypsophilas, 5mm closed Rosebuds which all have been dazzled up with Diamond Stickles. Corner has been accented with a decorative metal corner embellishment.
100 grit Silver German Glass Glitter, shook off the access and set aside to dry. This glitter is absolutely amazing!! If you haven't gotten any yet, you really need to get some because it is absolutely GORGEOUS! It's so sparkly in real life...this is by far the BEST glitter that I have ever used!!! I can see using this A LOT especially for Holiday cards!
Head over to the WOC Challenge Blog to see all of the other girls AMAZING samples! I also can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!
