A SplodgeAway Christmas

Hello folks, well the week is half way through and we're getting in the Christmas spirit over at SplodgeAway, there are so many gorgeous masks in the SplodgeAway range I was totally spoiled for choice! I used the gorgeous Christmas Village Stenskape for the main scene and the Snowflake border for the background.

The background was made by blending black soot distress ink on some ivory card and then stamping with a pretty Chocolate Baroque snowflake stamp and then applied white stencil paste through the snowflake border through here and there on the background. Once it was dry I added some little red gems. 

I used distress inks to create the scene and added lots of glitter, I love this little scene its soooo pretty. I've had a few people ask about this mask as it looks very complicated but my advice is not to be too careful, just go for it. 

To finish off I've added a die cut poinsettia with pearls in the centre, some holly vines, a seambinding bow topped with a Thermomorph heart - this stuff is really versatile, I'd made quite a few little hearts and wanted to glitter one so I just heated one up a bit and the glitter stuck!
