Hi Everyone can you imagine my surprise when I saw this picture over at The Shabby Tearoom?
If you know me you know that even my store is chartreuse and hot pink!!!! My most FAVE colors in the world....
and the challenge:
work with green, pink and flowers...
soooo me, right?
Well Kaisercraft made this gorgeous collection for their 2012 release called Mint Twist
irresistibly gorgeous, the colors scream my name all the way from Australia to Puerto Rico!
and so I worked this up for the challenge
If you know a bit about me you know how I love nutcrackers, I already started my 2012 wishlist
This year my best friend Myriam found me a wooden soldier, last year I did a king.
For this years version I decided to enamel the eyes, so they are a shade of blue
I used Ranger enamels in black and white and nail enamel in "candy peppermint" shade (looove the name!!!!)
I blinged his sword...couldn't help myself and did it in pink of course!
top view of the hat, the paints are acrylic metallic silver by Kaisercraftcolour, pearl white by Martha Stewart and citrus green by Deco Art. The cheeks are liquid pearls by Ranger and glitter by Doodlebug. The mouth is Red wagon acrylic paint by Making memories with the Ranger white enamel.
Profile view, flower by Prima
I used the paper pad from Mint Twist and the Bling is by Websters.
Hope you have enjoyed him as much as I did creating him!!!!
Big creative hugs to you
PS Thanks so much for the
