I decided to make a tussie mussie, which I thought would be a lovely way to give a holiday greeting to a friend. First I randomly used stamps from Tim Holtz's Urban Grunge set in Old Paper distress ink and then clear embossed them. Next the entire sheet was sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. A Scrollwork Alterations die cut plus three tiny Prima roses were used to cover where the cone was joined. An Idea-ology Memo Pin holds the Merry Christmas ticket stamp greeting and while an Idea-ology heart charm altered by coating it with Adirondack Alcohol Ink Gold Mixative adorns the tail of the tussie mussie.
This was such a fun project to do. It wasn't hard, didn't take too long and I think the result is gorgeous. I think I'll be making more of these beauties in the future!
