Ski Tunnel

Thursday, June 18th, 2009


We’d never seen a ski tunnel before and thought this needed to be documented. =) In order to get to one area of the ski resort, you had to pass through this concrete tunnel they bore through the mountain.

Details: The background grey/white patterned paper is by American Crafts – Modabella Pretty. The striped paper is Heidi Grace – exclusively for Archiver’s. The embellishment in the center was cut out of the background paper (center) before glueing the papers together. Stitching was done on my regular sewing machine. “Ski” was written with Making Memories glitter alphas. “Tunnel” was written with American Crafts Thickers foam alphas.
