This is a really quick post from me as I am not too well at the moment which is why I haven't been around much in Blogland lately - sorry! Its two cards, very similar - different colours and sentiment.
The beautiful stamp is no. CI-369 by Crafty Individuals. I have used it very simply by stamping and embossing on backgrounds I have in my offcuts box. Both backgrounds are pieces I have made myself but are left over from other projects - I never throw anything away! The sentiments are cut from black card using Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments then I went over them with two coats of clear Wink of Stella. I chose the sentiments I did as they were Christmas sentiments and girls names. I have added gems, Frosted Lace Stickles (as its quite vintage looking), and Red Sharpie for the gorgeous lady's lipstick. I edged both of the main images with a black Promarker.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
ScrappyMo's Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Goes as long as its Christmas
Crafty Individuals - Anything Goes
Pixies Snippets Playground - Must use snippets - Mine are the little pieces of black card for the die cut sentiments and the leftover bits of backgrounds for the main images.
That's Crafty Challenge - Girls will be Girls
These are all awesome challenge blogs - well worth a visit!
Thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it! I am sorry I haven't been around to visit, comment or post recently. Will try and catch up as I feel better.
Take care. Christine xxx
