Winter Lantern....

Over at the Winter Wonderland blog they have a challenge for us that is right up my alley...Winter Sports ! I am a total sports fanatic...I love hockey, figure skating, skiing, actually just about any sport! So when I saw this challenge....I thought it was just perfect to bring Tilda out to play!
Norma has this wonderful Winter Lantern tutorial on her blog that I followed and found so fun to do! If you have not seen her Lantern, you are in for a treat, so be sure to check her's out here!

For my icicles I didn't have the Martha Stewart punch so I had to draw them by hand first and then cut them out. I then added LOTS of glitter. I added liquid applique and glitter for snow. You should have seen my craft room...glitter everywhere!

I hope you have a chance to make one of these...they really are fun to do!

  5. Oh Christine, this is absolutely stunning. Wow... just love it. I've never ice-skated, as our climate in SA just doesn't allow for it and having lived in the country most of my childhood, there were no ice-rinks nearby to try this sport. I really envy you. It must be absolutely wonderful to ice-skate. As a child I used to dream that I was a famous ice-skater! Thanks for this post, as it's brought all those memories back again. hugs Sharon

  13. Hi Christine. Wow this is so stunning. Love the colours and you have done a fantastic job cutting out the icicles. Cute Tilda image and beautifully coloured. I can just imagine this at Christmas with a little tealight in it. Donna

  14. Wowzer. Christine, FAB-U-LOUS! Love your snow—so much better. I’ve been looking for that liquid appliqué in our local craft stores, but no one is selling them here—I think I have to buy them online. Your fence that you wrapped around the corner looks terrific that way—will keep that idea in mind for future projects…LOL. I just love your lantern!!!

    Hugs.
