Hi everyone.
It's time for the new releases from Karleigh Sue Digis. I have used "Ice Skating" coloured in with Promarkers. The papers used were very kindly donated to me by the lovely Tina, who was lucky enough to go to the craft fair at the NEC last week (I had to work) and these were part of her huge haul! I have used the snowflake edge die from "Crafts Too" and flowers from my stash. Ooh, and in that flower arrangement, there is a frosted cone. I have lots of countryside at the back of my house, where loads of Alder trees grow...that's where these little cones come from. So my little tip for today is how to frost them. I read on the interweb ages ago that you were supposed to bleach the cones to kill off any bugs. I didn't much like the idea of that, so I baked mine in a hot oven for twenty minutes; there's not much that can survive that! And they smelt lovely! I frosted them by dabbing them with watered down pva glue, and dunking them in Epsom Salts. I love them!
Please pop over to the Etsy store and have a nosey at the new releases!
