Very tiny features taking a steady hand and a keen eye. I know the really old snow babies are all white but I wanted a landscape to blend with a Christmas tree. We did the traditional red and green. I used a face paint that has a peach glitter in it hoping for a sheen (like it did when it dried on paper) and it does have a small sheen but not as much as I'd hoped for.
I used this antique silver glitter from the Martha Stewart line and I kick myself for not purchasing more when it was on sale. It's so hard to find. It's so beautiful acting more like a diamond dust than glitter.
Well, what in the world could I use to give these away in? I hadn't thought of that. It wouldn't be prudent to just hand 'em over! Geez, I saw a perfect thing to use my newest stamp for and I really shouldn't go to Craftmania, especially now that I know they have scads of rubber stamps (just the letters) for like....$.99 to $2.99.
A velvet drawstring storage bag with this cute tag will do the trick "From.....and the year" printed on the other side.
They turned out so cute! They are very hard to photograph though. I tried and tried and tried. Every time the flash was on it looked as if the babies have all these empty spots. The glitter is just to shiny.
