Today's card uses a very pretty piece of watercolour card that I coloured with Brusho's. I trimmed it to size and rounded the corners. The sentiment is embossed with an EP called Christmas colours - basically green with specks of red and gold. I have added a diecut snowflake and some bling and stars.

I have been having a lovely messy time decorating this set of little milk bottles.
I started by coating with gesso, then a pretty teal/blue paint, followed by crackling medium, and then an off white paint over the top, which crackled quite nicely. I also overstamped with a crackle stamp by Indigo Blu. I then decorated by winding some sparkly blue thread around the neck, diecut leaves and flourish and a pretty flower.

There are a number of Christmas challenges about at the moment, so I thought I would join in with this tag. I stamped with versamark and embossed with detail white ep. I added some sparkles to the centre of the larger snowflakes, and drew 3 lines with a white Sharpie paint pen.

I was very taken with this card design that I saw recently, and sorry I can't remember where. So simple and easy to make but looks so effective.
I have covered my card with a piece from my LOTV NitWit collection pad.
The Penny Black 'Brush Holly' stamp was coloured with watercolour pencils, spritzed with water, and stamped onto an oddment of white card. The faux stitching was done witha pen, and the words are a peel off that I coloured to match.

I had some time to play yesterday and this was the result.
The DP is from a lovely Bo Bunny pad that I won. I have distressed the edges. My pretty image was layered onto a diecut that I cut and overlapped to suit the size. I then stamped and embossed my butterflyand padded the wings so they pop up.
