Hello, today’s post is part of a hop to celebrate Mama Elephant’s third anniversary! Hopefully as part of the hop you’ve arrived here from the delightful Elena Roussakis, but if not start at the Mama Elephant blog for all the details. More on the hop below, but for now let’s have a look at this lovely Twinkle Towns set. The set comes with a tree branch and pine leaves, a bauble and two scenes for inside the bauble as well as a great brush script Oh Joy sentiment. There are also matching dies for the bauble with a die cut Oh Joy sentiment included.
I blended Sea Glass and Lake Shores inks into the top of a white panel and splattered with paints and Perfect Pearls solution before stamping the branch in Sparrow and the pine leaves in a combination of Beanstalk Green and Olive.
To get the vellum bauble with its stained glass look I stamped the bauble in Versamark on vellum and gold heat embossed and then stamped the mountain scene and white heat embossed. I die cut the bauble with the matching die and then turned it over to add touches of Copic color to the back of the scene. For the snow I painted on white enamel accents, again on the back of the scene, to give a good opaque white for the mountain tops and some of the lower slopes. Once dry the enamel accents also gave a good place to adhere clear foam adhesive to attach the bauble to the panel.
To get a matching gold for the die cut sentiment I gold heat embossed some scrap card and then used the Oh Joy dies before again mounting with clear foam adhesive. I added a twine bow and some sequins to the panel before mounting on a Desert Storm card base.
