Here is my DT project for this week. I used the Scarlet Robin from Beccy's Place. I love birds, so this was totally a fun project for me! I printed the bird larger than I had originally intended to do, but once I did, I figured I would go ahead and use it anyway. Once again, I used my Prima watercolors...which I may have to buy really soon, as they're starting to get smaller! I used black cardstock as my base, then trimmed red cardstock to layer on the outside cover. I then embossed my white cardstock as my dry emboss technique. I had a wooden chipboard piece I bought from ScrapbookingwithMe Boutique via their Facebook page, so I decided to use it for my wet embossing. I pressed my wooden piece into my BIG Emboss It (Clear) Ranger pad (from Reneabouquets). I then used the Stampendous Aged Rose embossing enamel and the Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel. I just happen to like the look. I added ribbon toward the lower bottom of the white, then adhered my wooden piece. Then I added flat-backed pearls from the SWMB. I also glued Sand Glass Glitter from Renea's. I put gloss on the beak and on the eye of the robin. And then I called it done! I didn't do anything to the inside as yet, because I wasn't sure what I'm going to use it for. I hope you enjoy it, and even more, I hope you join in the challenge and let me see what you've done!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out my YouTube channel too! (link in sidebar)
