Soft Pencil Tuesday!!!!

Yay, it is Soft Pencil Day! I make it no secret that Soft Pencil Day is my favorite day to blog, love her cute little images! I originally printed this weeks image out to put onto a card, but decided to alter a cardboard coaster with it instead to make an ornament. I get these packs of 6 coasters each at Michael's craft store, thinking I could do something paper craftery (I know, that is not a real word) with it. Well, all of a sudden the other day I came up with this Christmas ornament idea. So, watch my blog for some more ornaments in the next few days or so. Also, as soon as I finish this blog post, I am going to post this in my Zibbet store for sale.

So, first I colored Michu with my Prismacolor markers, then I added some Liquid Applique to the parts the Santa suit that are supposed to be fluffy. I let that dry overnight and then heated it with my heat gun. Next, I cut out my image with one of my circle nestibilities, and matted with my scalloped nestibilities. Then, I turned it upside down and used some tombo liquid glue to adhere the fringe fiber. Next I traced the coaster onto some card stock, and cut it out, adhered that to the coaster, then adhered the image to the coaster. The last thing was to cut a hole in the coaster with my crop-o-dile, and add the ribbon bow and loop to hang it with. The whole thing was so easy, run to your nearest Michael's and get some of these and make some for your self, or buy some from me. LOL. I have some others in the works with different images and colors, etc..... If you have an requests, send me an email (link on my sidebar).

Now, hop on over to the Soft Pencil blog and Etsy store and see what sales and cute images you can find there. Also, visit the other DT girls (links on my sidebar), and leave them some love for all of their hard work posting samples for you to get inspiration from!

Until next time...........Blessings, Lisa

P.S. Please excuse me, but I was unable to log-in to my Zibbet store, so stay tuned for updates on what is in there for sale! I may have to switch back to Etsy!
