The Nutcracker - Tis the Season ...... is our challenge this fortnight at Creative Card Crew. What is it the season of, you ask. Well, for me, it is the season of watching the ballet - Nutcracker. I didn't take ballet as a child, but I did as an adult. I loved it!!!!!! They asked me if I wanted to be in the recital and I told them "Yes, I do." It was a bunch of 12 year old's and me. LOL
I had a wonderful time. The next year we had enough adults to do an adult tap and jazz class, plus another adult joined me and the 12 year old's in the ballet class. We did not do the nutcracker, but we had lovely dresses and I would have felt like a real ballerina; expect that I fell and broke my foot 2 weeks before the recital. I danced anyways - with the big, clunky boot!
My image is Sassy Designs and is colored with Copic's. I added Gemstones to the nutcracker's crown and Stickles to the dancer's bow, sash and blouse, which unfortunately, doesn't show in the photo much. I then fussy cut her.
My DP is Recollections, The Ballet. DP was inked with Ranger's distress inks in Forest Moss. Forest Moss is a little hard to find, but you can get it and many other crafting delights at our sponsor Simon Says Stamp.
My ribbon is MS, which I sprayed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, then scrunched. After it was dry, I tied the bow with my Bow Easy. The big green gemstones are Making Memories. I also added 3 tiny pearls to the bottom left of the card. I made a pin with varies beads and stuck it in the bow.
What is Tis the Season for you?
