Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Well I'm back again this time with my DT Creation for Deep Ocean Challenge. This fortnight the challenge is.............
CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST
...........now as soon as I saw the challenge I knew exactly which stamp company I was using..........I just needed decide which stamp to use. Yes of course I'm talking about the new LOTV christmas stamps, the problem was which one to use............decisions, decisions.......
..........yes eventually I went with this gorgeous stamp, probably on of my faves from the new release tbh.

I have used Marianne Design dies for the 'Poinsettia' & the 'Leaves', I added 'Snowtex' to the poinsettia & a Pink Lily to the centre. I also added lace & a doily which are from my stash.

This is the inside. The papers are the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics, I have used '5th December' & '19th December', I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched them. For the shape I have used a Spellbinder XXL die.

I have made a bow with gorgeous crushed satin lace & added a 'Shabby Chic Angel'. The tree is also a Marianne Design which again is covered with Snowtex.

This gorgeous LOTV stamp is called 'Christmas Light' I love these angels, they are my fave from the new release, although I love them all tbh ;0) I have coloured her with distress markers & covered her wings in Stardust Stickles, the flame & the stars on the headband have had Yellow stickles on them.

The tag is a Magnolis doo-Hickey & I added a bit of seam binding from my stash, the sentiment on it is from LOTV 'Christmas Handwritten Phrases' sentiments.

Well thats about it form me today lol. I have a few of these new LOTV stamps coloured up so you will be seeing more of them, at least one more of them this week ;0) It was either I buy the new Magnolia stamps or the LOTV stamps.............yep LOTV won hands down!!!

Well tatty bye my lovelies, thank you again for putting up with me & stopping by my bloggy mmwah

Beautiful card Vicky. Love the soft colours you've used. LOTV are my favourite stamps too at the moment as I'm being swayed by Saturated Canary images now.

Beautifully made ​​and wonderfully painted finish

I haven't seen many of the new LOTC X-mas stamps, apart from a couple that Becky has used so this was an educational stop for me. :-) Cute as always and a gorgeous shabby winter card. The poinsettia with the added lily as a centre piece is stunning.
