Hi again, this is a card I made a while ago before I had a blog it is using one of the sweet digi images from Sugar Nellie coloured with copics and promarkers, nitwit papers for the background and some handmade flowers glittered (naturally) with a marianne die doily and sizzix (I think) swirl again they have been glittered.
|This one looks more true to life - I think the camera got carried away with the other picture!|
More Christmas bauble cards from me today, I think I'm addicted luckily I've only got a couple of distress ink pads at the mo otherwise I think I would have done one in every colour under the sun 1o1. I do need to do a few more as I think I'm a bit heavy handed with the distressing at the moment but practice makes perfect.
|Believe it or not this was actually milled lavender which is a purple not a pink!|

One of my new Fizzy Moon stamps (couldn't resist them they are so cute! lol). Stamped with black memento and coloured with Promarkers (naturally) and then glittered within an inch of their life. Then I stamped the little extra stamps all over the backing paper in black memento and then layered it up with card from my stash and ribbon, the bow was tied with the papermania bow maker (how did I live without this tool? lol). Craftwork card sentiment distressed with fired brick distress ink.
This is a new type of card for me. I've never used a distress ink before but these stamps were crying out for something different. Papermainia Bauble stamps from a goody bag, embossed with WOW embossing powder, the edges were distressed with fired brick using a shaving brush from Wilkinsons. They were masked and another stamp in fired brick was stamped off the edge twice. Mounted and layered with card from my stash and the baubles string was drawn in afterwards.
