Another Gesso Background

Here is another card with the Gesso background that I learned from Craft Stamper.

The lady stamp is Crafty Individuals and the sentiment is Penny Black on Spellbinder Labels 4.  Those gorgeous little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made this card for my good friend Julie at Paper Pathway.  Its scary making cards for Julie cause, as you can see if  you visit her fab blog, she is soooo talented!  I hope you have a nice day, mine will be spent making Christmas cards after I have caught up with all my blog friends - I am a bit behind at the moment! Take care and thank you for visiting.  Christine xx

Snowy Mouse

I would like to say hello and thank you to my new followers and also thank you to all of my followers for your continued support, it is so appreciated and means such a lot!

I fell in love with this Penny Black Xmouse ornament stamp and just had to buy it!  The snowflakes are from the Crafters Companion stamp set Let it Snow.  The stamping is all with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder and the little mouse is coloured with Promarkers.  The snowflakes are coloured with Salty Ocean Distress Ink watered down and painted.  The same ink is used to blend around all the edges, I used a blending tool and Splodgeway mat which makes it so easy!  The Spellbinder is labels 4 and I have added loads of Glamour Dust for sparkle.

I would like to enter this into the Blue and Silver challenge over at Splodgeaway, pop over and see the fab projects the design team have made. Take care, Christine xx

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 179

I didn't make WOYWW last week so am glad to be back.  In fact, I have been a very bad blogger, this is my first post for ages!  Note to self, 'must do better'!

Today I am making Christmas cards using the Penny Black Xmouse Ornament stamp, its so cute!  The blue ink is Salty Ocean Distress Ink and I am using my Splodgeway mat for blending.  My Grand Calibur is to the left, Promarkers lurking behind that and a tile with more of the ink on, which I spritzed with water and used to paint the centres of the snowflakes which are from Crafters Companion Let it Snow stamp set from a few years ago.   If you would like to join in the Wednesday fun Julia's place is where to be. Thank you for visiting my desk and take care.  Christine xx
