I used an Aqua Painter (Catalogue p123) to blend the dark brown and turquoise inks in my stamped image. Boy was it fiddly "ruching" the ribbon - I'd run out of glue dots & was using Glossy Accents instead ... won't be doing that again!
Thanks for popping by!

I rather like the olive green hand-made paper (forgotten I had it!). I used it here to make a more masculine card, coupled with navy blue and gold. Card is based on latest Sketch Frenzy Friday's sketch 101411.
& a Stampin Up Mistletoe stamp. Well I think it's meant to be mistletoe?! I highlighted the berries with white pearls. The card beneath the olive green handmade paper is pearly white to complement the berries - not that you can tell from the photo ... oh well!
After doing the Wild Rose blog hop, I was inspired to use some pastel colours for a Xmas card rather than my usual conventional red/green/gold combo! The snowflake is a lovely irridescent pink/lilac/green shade that complements the other colours really well - well I think so :).
Hello there! I love playing with colour, texture, patterned paper & ribbons, oh and stamps, of course! I hope my blog helps inspire you to go & create. I hold monthly craft sessions in Derby UK. Please feel free to get in touch if you fancy coming along!
