The 12 Days of Christmas Courtesy of The Daily Dare!

Hi all! Now that the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over and we're starting to get itchy to get back our craft rooms, what better time than to issue a dare... courtesy of The Daily Dare! It's the 12 days of Christmas there and I'm helping to usher in the final day of challenges! You can read up on all 12 challenges HERE!!

My challenge is brought to you by... FLOURISHES. And there are two very pretty stamp sets on the line. All you need to do is follow this sketch...

And, here's a peek at the two sets that you'll win! Lace Edges and Paperwhites.

On to my creation.....

I decided to use the Paperwhites set for my creation. I just love the elegance of this set! I followed the sketch and then matched it up with some BasicGrey Curio decorative paper. After stamping the small paperwhite onto some Flourishes Classic White Paper, I colored it up with Copic Markers using E53 and E35 on the roots, YG93, YG95 and YG99 on the stems and BG0000 and Y17 on the flowers themselves. Shade with W01 and W00 and... almost done! I did add some antiquing thanks to Old Paper Distress Ink. I also edged my stamped panel with a gold leaf pen. And then, mat it up, add some gold self-stick pearls, 1/2" black ribbon and... Fini!

Wanna play? The deadline to enter is midnight on Sunday January 9th. If you want to play along with my sketch, just use the keyword  DD12days12 to upload your project to the gallery at SCS. Winners will be announced on Monday January 10th! And, if you want to up your chances at winning the daily prize - you can read up on all 12 challenges HERE!! There's a different prize each day.

Thanks for stopping by! See you back here soon!
