Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well its time for a new challenge over at the Live & Love Crafts Blog.......wow these months are flying by!! It will soon be time for the jolly fella in red to come woo hoo. Tbh I brought the first crimbo present beginning of August...........I dont normally start til September but.........well grandchildren need to be spoilt by grandparents........ ;0)
Ok back to the challenge where the thewme this month is...........
.............how super easy is that. I have the card I was gonna use last wednesday for my inspirational post...........so yep its another LOTV image..........its an addiction that I dont plan on having treatment for ;0)
I have again used the new gorgeous Pion Winters Day papers, they really are lush. These ones are 'Christmas Eve' 6x6 & all have been inked with walnut & machine stitched.
The poinsettia I made with a La La Land die & it got inked with pumice stone then sprayed with lots of Glimmer Mist then added a silver Metal Rose to the centre from Live & Love Crafts.
I added Pom Pom trim to the side & all the flowers are from LLC, including the 'Frosted Berries' which I love. I also added a 'Fir Cone' & bits of 'Snowtex' over all the flowers.
This darling LOTV image is one of the latest christmas ones & one of my faves, it's called 'A Little Prayer' & again I did Elise's effect with the embossing but this one I coloured with Copics. I did this & the snowman family the same night & wanted to compare with copic vs distress ink ;0)
Colours used are........
E11, E21, E00, E000, RV21
E29, E25, E23, E21
RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91
C5, C3, C1
I also added Tim Holtz Picket Fence glitter to the bottom as snow, I love how thick this glitter is. Of course I also added White Fran-Tage around the image ;0)
The lace along the bottom is gorgeous 'Crocheted Pearl Lace 22mm', I lurve all the little pearls on it. I also added a 'Silver Snowflake' on the end, again with a touch of Snowtex. I added a beautiful 'Resin Angel' to the bottom as well, I chose this one as she is praying aswell.......perfect together.
The banner I made myself using a LOTV 'Christmas Handwritten Phrase' stamp.
Well thats it from me peeps, for most of these yummy goodies used on my card & much MUCH more pop on over to Live & Love Crafts & feast your eyes on the gorgeousness that Sandy stocks. Think I'm due for a shopping trip as well mind............I've not brought any crafty goodies for ages!!
