It's #CarveDecember

CarveDecember created by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer  of Balzer Designs is easily my favorite challenge of the year.

This is my third time participating and for an added layer of excitement I decided to do all original characters that I might merge together into an art journal style picture book. 

It's scarily ambitious :-)

Here's my first two:


Kenneth' mad scientist turned astronomer searching for a girl with galaxies in her eyes.

Mushroom Gift Toppers

These were such a blast to make. 
And so simple I did them sick in bed.

Add an eyescrew to a half ball.
Glue to candle cup.
Varnish tops with sparkle Mod Podge
Thread with bakers twine.

See... easy :-)

This is the project I made for the Text Background challenge over on the Stampotique Designer's Blog

Quick Tip: If you want to adhere paper to a curved surface, mist both sides with water to relax the fibers. It makes all the difference.

Stamp Used: Hunk
