Sugar Nellie - My Friend Flakey Bauble

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning, I hope you had a wonderful and fun Halloween, and if you're in the UK a brilliant Bonfire night despite the awful weather we've had. 
As this is our Day of Remembrance, please give a thought to all our brave and wonderful hero's both living and departed (including my granddad), that risked and continue to risk their lives in the pursuit of peace. WE THANK YOU!
 Well, it's Wednesday and my turn to share my Sugar Nellie make with you. So this week I thought I would make the boy version of the little Christmas bauble I made recently. This time I've used 'My Friend Flakey', which is available as a digital stamp from Funkykits. 
I apologise in advance for the photograph quality of the baubles. Unfortunately it's not fantastic as I had to turn off the camera flash and my overhead light to try and avoid the reflection in the plastic bauble.

Here's What I Did
Firstly I die cut 2 blue scallop circles from card for the back of my bauble. Next I printed the image onto colouring cardstock along with a sentiment and die cut it into a circle, distressed the edge and attached it to one of the scallop circles. The image was coloured with Copic Markers, and I added some white dots around it to add a little interest along with a few die cut glittery snowflakes.  Using strong glue PVA I smeared a small amount around the rim of the bauble I attached it to the circles. 
To stop the bauble from tipping forward I added a little extra weight by gluing a few coins to the back, I used the remaining die cut scalloped circle to hide them using foam tape.  To finish off I added a length of Bakers Twine and a ribbon.

Oh gosh, I can imagine what a nuisance this must have been to photograph but it looks great and is such a wonderful keepsake. I love the pretty blue twine and ribbon tied round it :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
