The weather is so mild at the moment and I still have fuchsia in full flower...long may it last. I love the dew on these beauties.
The clocks went back on Saturday night so we need all the light we possible can. I decided to make something very sparkly for my DT piece, a fairy Christmas card using some very non traditional Christmas colours. I added lots of sparkle too.
I made my background with distress stain and then added and ink through my Tim Holtz star stencil
I stamped my Lavinia fairy
I added a little blue and purple around the edges and my Noor Christmas star die cut. Then I replaced my stencil and added some sparkle medium for extra bling
and Stickles to her wings for even more shine for a snowy scene.
Here she is again after drying with a TH celebrate sentiment in glitter card to add that extra sparkle for Christmas. Do you think that up there with the fairies, these stars then fall as snowflakes on earth...I do ;0)
I have used this colour way and stamp for my 2nd DT card which is coming up on 27 November. You will see how very different 2 designs can look. Stay tuned.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge anything goes
Allsorts Let's made a start on Christmas
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Thanks for visiting. Happy November everyone and yes I can say it now...only 54 days til Christmas...are you ready ;0)
Bye for now,
