It's a Little Paper Shop Chanukkah!

...Well maybe it has a little bit of PTI too.

When Little Paper Shop came out with the set Global, I fell in love. The idea of a blank snowglobe conjured up so many ideas for me. From NYCesque skyscrappers to every holiday under the sun, I could feel the flexibility. One particular thing I liked about it was the idea that I could put a Menorah in it, to make my own holiday verison.

I'll explain the Snowglobe by steps:

  1. Stamp Globe from Global set and Menorah from PTI onto 90lb watercolor paper in Staz-on Black.
  2. Use a tempting tuorquoise reinker to color in the 'globe'.
  3. Use a Rose Red reinker to color in the bottom.
  4. Place distress stickles in Antique Linen on the flames and Broken China under the Menorah.
  5. Shade globe with Night of Navy sponge.
  6. Shade bottom with Adirondack Acrylic paint.
  7. Cut out!
I had a blast playing with all the colors and blending everything!

Hope you like it!
Happy Stamping,
