Sweet Dreams Angel

I had full intended to play along on Splitcoaststampers VSN that was going on this weekend. They're always so much fun! As it turned out, I only got the chance to do one of them and that was the luminary challenge. I love 3-D projects and knew exactly what I wanted to make.

I made a rather large luminary cause I wanted to use my oval nestabilities so my image would look like she was sitting at the bottom and wouldn't look too large for the space. I started off with two pieces of card stock measuring 6 x 8 3/4 inches. I scored each piece at 4 inches, 8 inches and that left a 3/4 inch glue tab. I glued only one glue tab at this time. I wanted to add my matted paper to each of the panels and then run them through the cuttlebug before I glued the other one.

I then cut 4 oval frames using my largest and next to largest oval nestabilities (tip: add a piece of tape to each end of the nesties to keep them in the same position for cutting). I then glued them to the outside of the oval. I then attached the vellum to the inside panels and attached the image and banner to the outside.

The image I used for this project is from Bugaboo Stamps Wee Ones set. I colored her with copic markers and prismacolor pencils. The sentiment was created using print shop.

All in all I'm pleased at how this turned out. I just wish I could have done more of the challenges.

That's all I have for now. Time to get ready for the work week. I felt a little better today but I'm kind of groggy from taking Nyquil all weekend. I'm such a light weight when it comes to medication. LOL

Y'all have a great week and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
