Lizzie with Licorice

Hi, its a really wet and miserable day here today and of course Monday is never my favourite day of the week lol. I wanted to share this card I made over the weekend using a Whiff of Joy stamp 'Lizzie with Licorice' that I got from Jazzlins Designs.

I really had loads of messy fun making this card, I decided to use the sketch from the latest Whiff of Joy Challenge and a monochomatic colour scheme for a change. I thought Lizzie would look great in these sepia tones as she has such a cute vintage look.

I made the bp by using vintage photo DI and cosmic shimmer bronze blush spray ink on plain white card. It has a lovely shimmer but the camera hasn't picked it up. Once it was dry I stamped Paula Pascual snowflakes and embossed with Antique linen distress EP. I coloured the doiley and lace with antique linen and vintage photo distress inks.

The image is painted with vintage photo distress ink and the snowflakes stamped are stamped and embossed with vintage photo DI and antique linen EP. I made the snowflakes using the scraps of leftover card and Marianne snowflake dies, they are glittered with clear holographic glitter and the centres are clear gems coloured with alcohol ink. To finish off I added some coffee coloured grosgrain ribbon and a little candy cane charm (peeping from under the snowflakes)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
