Happy Christmas ...Take 2...

Good morning and welcome to the second day of Christmas.....

On the second day of Christmas Barbara gave to me....a brilliant new stamp and stencil set...

I hope you like it...

It all started with some red card, the stencil and my eBosser....remember your stencils work so well with embossing machines.

I used coordinations card so that I could then do some sanding....

This helps the image to pop and stand out better..

I then used my embossing tool on the reverse of the card...

I stamped the large round stamp on to white card and the centre part onto red card using VersaMark ink.....these were then embossed with detail gold embossing powder. I then cut them out and layered them up...

 

Some matting and layering and four gold Card Candi.....plus some white highlights with a pencil...

Here is a closer look....

I hope you have a good day...I am just off for a long walk with Tess....it really makes me happy....the sun is shinning and the birds are singing...

Tomorrow I have workshops in Hazel Grove...I really look forward to seeing this lovely group of crafters....we have been together for quite a few years now....and it is so good to have friendship and Trust.....you see Trust is a small word but a very important one....and it seems to be going out of fashion....

So please be kind to each other today...

Crafty hugs ,

Jo. xxxx

  5. Really love the embossed detail of the stencil, must give it a try. I also just caught up with yesterdays blog and the window guilding is stunning. Certainly need to play with both these techniques. XX
