Once again I decided to go for something different - this time an easel card, only the second one I've ever attempted :)
The image is another digi from the Digi Stamp Boutique - Birthday Zoe - again, not a particularly Christmas themed image but it fitted in with my 'G for Gifts' theme.
Skin: Blush, Ivory & Soft Peach
Hair: Burnt Sienna, Caramel & Vanilla
Crown: Pastel Yellow & Ruby
Dress: Soft Peach, Vanilla & the Blender
Gift Boxes: Denim Blue, Pastel Blue, PastelYellow & Ruby
Shading: Cool Grey 1
As you can see, she got the glitter treatment, and then some; gold, silver, red (Papermania) and blue (bought at Tesco a few years ago for the grandchildren to craft with and not the most satisfactory, the granules are too chunky.)
I didn't do much to the inside of this card - just a simple panel of that lovely spotty paper matted on to turquoise pearlescent card to decorate the back but a bit more decoration to the panel at the front. The sentiment is a stamp that came free with the October edition of Craft Stamper, stamped in Versamark then embossed with gold powder and adhered with foam dimensionals.
Other materials used: Prima Essentials Flights of Fancy flowers, e.line flat-backed pearls brads, brads and ribbon from my stash, origin unknown now.
The lovely lace trim is a Magnolia doily lace strips cut die bought online from Poppy's Cabin. Of course, the card folds flat for posting.
Before I go I have to tell you about the surprise package I received today - I've won a freebie! I make a point of shooting off postcards for any freebies that I fancy when they are offered in a magazine and then promptly forget I have done so - in this case Quick Cards Made Easy magazine, Issue 79. Hence the surprise when this complete set of Series 1 of the SWALK stamps + the disk from Crafters Companion arrived totally unannounced. I think that is the only issue I have :)
Bye for now
