Good afternoon all, and thanks for joining me today...
Thanks for all your lovely messages and text and Danielle and Adam are in the delivery suite as I type this blog post. I will keep you up to date...
Just before my holidays I had some wonderful new Christmas stamps to play with , these have been designed by the very talented and sadly misssed Jayne Nestorenko .
I just had to make a vintage style card...
I used Kraft card....you know how I love this .
The stamps are quite large so out came my Misti.....( perfect)
First I stamped the frame using Potting soil , Archival ink.
Then I added the stamped image...I do love this little boy and his dog
The masks are so useful, and it saves all that cutting out.
I added a base coat using picket fence ink.
And then some colour. I also stamped some extra designs , added colour and cut them out.
I used Camel Safari ink to add shade around the edge and also for the background stamping. It just helps to create the vintage look.
Then to highlight the snow , I used some more picket fence ink, this time onto my mat and used as a watercolour paint.
Then time for some snow....in the form of chunky white embossing powder . Do remember to heat from underneath with this .
Finally some matting and layering , and those embellishments.
Oh bless, how cute is that dog.....
I just adore this image so much .
Right , I had better get on, what a long list of jobs I have to get through...although I must admit , I am having trouble concentrating today...
Have a lovely weekend....
Much love and hugs.
