Good morning, today I've got a card featuring the gorgeous new Fabulous Flappers stamps from Chocolate Baroque. These stamps are gorgeous on their own but also will work beautifully with lots of other Chocolate Baroque stamps. My first thought when I say this lovely lady in her elegant coat was that she's look fab with one of my favourite Christmas stamps from The Gift of Christmas. I just love this lovely Christmas tree with the adorable pets silhouetted in front of it and of course its never to early to start those Christmas cards.
I began by stamping the lady and masking her with masking tissue. Next I stamped the tree stamp and masked that, if you find large silhouette stamps difficult to stamp my little trick is to go over the image with a black marker to cover any areas that I haven't stamped properly. I added a die cut circular mask to create the moon and set to work with distress inks and a blending tool to create the sky (I used faded jeans, stormy skies and chipped sapphire). Once the ink was dry I added silver PanPastel to the moon area for a little shimmer.
I removed the masks and coloured the images with Graph'It markers and added some red stickles to the lights on the tree. Once everything was dry I took a white Graph'It shake pen and added lots of snow
I've layered the card up over some card that I'd stamped with a snowflake stamp and then covered it up with ribbon and lace. To finish off I've added a white bow and a snowflake brad.
