A couple more cards from Saturday's marathon effort....
this first one started with white card stock that I stamped with HA Music Background in Tea Dye distress ink and then blending the same ink over the card after putting a circle mask for the moon. Stamped the Angel on (from a set by Inkadinkado)I. The sentiment went up the side as it didn't quite fit along the bottom where I wanted it to go. Once I matted it onto the mulberry card, I realised it wasn't straight... so to hide that, I angled the piece onto the nutmeg card. Added some Kaisercraft pearls just to finish it off... thinking though I might add some Stickles to the angel's flowers.... what do you think?
My next Christmas card is for the Penny Black Octoberfest. I have one stamp from their Christmas Catalogue so used that.
I coloured the mice with Pearlescent paints and matted it onto gold papers. The black starry paper came from a $2 pack I got a couple of years ago and have never used... ( I have heaps of papers that I see, love, buy and then they sit in my cupboard forever lost!!!)
I bought the sentiment stamp on Saturday as I thought it was very sweet - here I embossed with a copper coloured EP - added a Fiskars edging done in the gold paper to cover the join and then pop dotted the main image.
I have just looked at my friend, Sue B's blog... she was at Stamp Group with me on Saturday and made the most cutest Teddy Bear Christmas cards.... really shabby chic looking... but oh so cute. Pop over to her blog and have a look around...and leave her some love....her cards are so awesome.
Thanks for stopping by.... I really appreciate all the wonderful comments people are leaving... really makes my day. Thanks so much,
