Sleigh Ride: Ivy Plate

sleighrideplate

This goes into my file of “difficult things to photograph.”  I altered a clear, glass plate that I’ve had in my stash for about 6 or 7 years.  I stamped the holly filler from the new set from The Petal Press, Sleigh Ride (available for $10 tomorrow!) in Palette Noir on some gorgeous glass paper plateclosethat I picked up at a local frame shop.  Seriously, you can’t tell from the  image, but the paper has glass woven in it so it is SO sparkly.  I colored with my Prisma pencils and touched all the berries with some Stardust Stickles for some extra sparkle.  Then, once those were dry I used some Royal Coat to modge-podge it to the BACK of plate.  I forgot how messy that is.  Heh.

Anyway, this is a handwash only item and I would only use it for things like serving cookies or other dry items but it is pretty, right?

I love how versatile Sleigh Ride is – that you can use the pieces alone or with the sleigh.  I can’t wait to show you the whole thing tomorrow so be sure to check back then!

Thanks for stopping by!
