Mix It Up Monday: Frosted Medallions



Happy New Year! I hope 2017 turns out to be a good one for you. To get things off to a remarkably efficient start, I have a Mix It Up Monday project on a New Year theme for you. 

But before you feel even a glimmer of admiration for my organisational skills, I confess I made this hurriedly on Friday evening, during my Christmas Hygge Night, inspired by one of the guests, Grace, and the beautiful cards she’d made. 



It’s a tricky colour combination for me, but I cannot deviate from the In Color chartsso I inked up the medallion in Peach, then sponged the edges with Rose Red before stamping. Then I inked the same stamp again in Blushing Bride before sponging a little Tangerine Tango in the centre. I – well, Grace did it for me, actually – fussy cut the centre medallion and popped it upon top, finishing off with an enamel shape. 

If this stamp set is on your wish list, please don’t delay... as it retires tomorrow!
