Good morning my lovelies, I'm having such a busy week at work I dont know if I'm on my arse or my elbow as my grannie would say lol. We only have 5 staff and 3 are off so I've been doing everything from funding bids to making the tea and cleaning the toilets this week so I haven't had much time or energy for visitng so I'll be popping round to catch up at the weekend. But enough moaning, I'm in the Christmas spirit with a card featuring one of the beautiful stamps from Gothic Angels, one of this months new stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque. . This angel is so pretty and feminine so I decided to go for a pink and gold theme.
I made the background using distress stains in VIctorian Velvet, Tea Dye, Spun Sugar and Tarnished Brass and overstamped with one of the gorgeous background stamps from Gothic angels, firstly with Tattered Rose and then with versamark, embossed with WOW gold embossing powder. The main image has been coloured with Graph'it markers, die cut and matted on some craft card. I've added a little brass charm, come twine and a bow to finish off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: die cuts/punches
Card mania: Favourite embellishment (ribbon for me)
Get Inky: ribbons
Paper Minutes: pastel colours
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Die cuts/punches
Top Tip Tuesday: embossing
If you've got a minute pop over to the Chocolate Baroque DT blog, my lovely teamies have come up with some stunning projects to showcase this months new stamps.
Thanks for popping by today
