Christmas in August!!




Hi,
Well we have had some rain at last in West Sussex! I could here my plants cheering!! At least I had a night off from hosing.
This is the first of a number of cards I have made for Little Claire, using their brilliant, new Christmas stamps.
This one I coloured with Distress Inks but I have also done another version, using Copic pens, which I will post another day.
I added stickles and Glossy Accents to the baubles and crystal glitter to her dress trim.
There are so many great stamps, I didn't know which one to post first but as this was the first one I made, I thought I would start posting with it as well.
For the tree, I just daubled (technical term), Peeled Paint Distress Ink to add texture.

I used a Sakura Stardust gold pen on the stars, with Stickles over it.
For her dress I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
I love this colour, as it has a real velvet appearance, that unfortunetly, this photo does not show very well.





The holly leaves are the Cuttlebug embossing folder, run through with white card. I cut out the leaves, coloured them with Peeled Paint Distrss Ink and Eucalyptus Stickles. Added some red Card Candy for the berries.


I will post another of my Christmas cards over the weekend.

Now which one will it be?!!!
Have a good weekend,

Carol x
