Good morning folks, its a horrible rainy morning here today perfect for catching up on some crafting. We're feeling all Christmassy over at We Do Doobadoo this time so pop on over to the challenge blog and check out all the details as there's a fab prize for our lucky winner and loads of inspiration from my teamies too!
I've used a LOTV stamp for my Christmas card, she's been coloured with distress inks and glittered.
I've made the background with PanPastels and the Dutch Doobadoo A5 stars stencil, once I'd added the colour I applied Maimeri Glassy Gel and removed the stencil before sprinkling clear glitter over the top. It does take a while to dry but the glassy gel gives the background loads of dimension. I've used kraft card to mat and layer the image and the background after distressing the edges and added some pompom trim, seambinding ribbon, a button and some twine. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, I love these postage stamp sentiments and the matching die! I've used some of the fab Dutch Doobadoo Kraft Stars, I've coloured the white side with Hansa Yellow PanPastel and again applied Maimeri Glassy Gel and some glitter.
