Hello and a very warm welcome to my new followers. I have been so grateful to receive such lovely comments to my last post below (A Christmas Tree). It was a great deal of work but your encouragement makes it so worthwhile.
I spent last Saturday at a workshop with CropTarts in Dublin making a Beach House structure designed by the wonderful Dutch artist Lisa de Witte. It was lovely to try out new techniques and to meet new fellow crafters from Ireland.
I feel that I really should begin to build a stock of Christmas cards so here is my card for today;
Base Bazzill CS. Another layer of pink Bazzill is then covered with sparkling flourish vellum by Papermania. The beautiful angel stamp is by Crafty Individuals (C1-211) that has been stamped with Ranger black Archival Ink and matted on Bazzill. The gorgeous Wings from (Andy Skinner ASCSA5010) have been stamped on tissue paper with black Archival Ink and embossed with Judikins Black Diamond EP. I have added Ranger Distress Dry Glitter in Clear Rock Candy to the angel image and particularly built it up on angel's wings. I 'pinned' the frou ribbon by Melissa Frances with brads to stretch it out. Then topped with Venise lace and bows. Added velvet ric-rac across top and crystals to complete.
That's it. Wishing all a lovely week to come.
