Hi Everyone, Another muggy, showery day here in West Sussex. I hung out the washing in the sunshine and half an hour later, it's pouring down! I got soaked getting it off the line and then had to put it into the drier. What a waste of crafting time!
Well that is my rant for the day.
Firstly, I must thank everyone for their kind messages regarding my Mother-in-law and her passing. All the people in blogland are so kind and it must be the best and biggest family network.
I made this card, using a stamp from the first Lili of the Valley Christmas stamp release. I had so many requests from customers last year for Angel cards, that I just had to buy 2 of them in this release. This is Holy Light.
She is just gorgeous, as I am sure you will agree. She is so easy to colour, not too fiddly. I used my favourite Distress Inks. I used Stickles on the wings, her dress and the wreath and added extra ultra fine glitter on top. I used dries white glue and glitter for the snow.
I then made the backing paper from plain white paper. Firstly I mixed some white detail embossing powder with some ultra fine glitter, just slightly more EP than glitter. I then randomly stamped the snowflake with Versamark Watermark Ink and then heat embossed it with my powder mix. Then using Chipped Sapphire DI and a piece of Dry Foam, I applied it around the edges and randomly over the paper. I then randomly stamped the snowflake using Chipped Sapphire. (A very 'random' card!)
I cut an A5 card into a stepper, using my die cut as the guide for the size.
I cut the Flourish from Mirri Board, using a Marianne Creatables die. The Snowflakes are also a Marianne set of dies, cut from glitter board.
I am going to finish my other LOTV angel card hopefully today. You never know I might post twice this week! Please don't hold your breath though!
I have plenty of pics to post but never seem to find the time. Even now I have just had to run out to the garage to get the washing out of the tumble drier. The rain just missed me this time! I still haven't washed the bathroom and kitchen floors yet and it's 4.30pm. I don't know where the time has gone today.
This is a first for me now, as I am going to enter this card into 3 challenges!
