Today I'm sharing two samples with our new friend the bunny - Hm. That guy needs a name... - and all of us here in the Basile Family are skiiers. In our house, the saying is "If you're not turning, you're not learning." But, I think Alma has it right. Check out this sentiment....
"If you're not crashing, you're not skiing" I totally love it. I laughed my head off when I saw it, because seriously each time I ski I have one of those moments when I know I'm totally going to eat it. Usually when I'm trying to keep up with my eight year old. He's an amazing skiier, and well, honestly, I'm pretty terrible.
Along the winter sports theme, Mr Bunny is also doing a little ice fishing - for frozen carrots perhaps? *giggle* Wishing now that I'd stamped in a few beer bottles for him or something, because ice fishing, wow, that's a hobby that just makes me scratch my head. Brr. "Just chillin'" I think is seriously an understatement.
I added in some snowflakes with TCP Glitzy, and added a warm layer to his coat with Liquid Applique. I created the illusion of some ice with a layer of Diamond Glaze (but not too sure you can see it here in the picture... its glossy and ice-ish in real life. I promise...)
For this little set, I pulled out the watercolor papers, aquapainter and reinkers and got to work. I seriously love doing that, I grabbed all my supplies and painted a while while my hubby and I caught up on all the TiVO that had collected while he was on his business trip to Japan. The next day, once everything was dried up, I cut my Nesties, and had lots of fun with the sewing machine. If you're interested in a little tutorial on watercoloring, I've got a video one to share in my sidebar over there ---->
You'll see this sentiment treatment on a few of my cards lately, I'm sort of obsessed. Ledger paper, flag ends, stitched in place. Its a thing.
Now, be SURE you don't miss any of today's previews. Swing on over to Alma's blog and you'll find other samples of today from Susan, Tracy and Sony!
