Christmas Shades of Blue

It's Christmas card time again and this week it's time for some colours - take a look

And here is my card

My Three Wise Men have been embossed with clear embossing powder so that when I sponged my scene in blue they stood out better.
I used a variety of blue inks from a very dark navy that was almost black to a pale sky blue used for the sky.
You may notice that there is no silver - there was a silver gem on the star but it must have dropped off while I was setting it up to photograph it. I found it a while later stuck to the cat!!

Don't forget to drop by at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and take a look at all the other gorgeous DT cards. Meanwhile I'm off on my holidays for a week - see you soon xx

Saturday, 2 July 2016

Good morning, firstly I'd like to apologise for my lack of blogging lately. Things have been a bit tough over the last few weeks but - there are good times on the horizon so I've just got to hold out for a few more days.
On the plus side - I've got a new job. I'm working in one of the shops in the High Street in Bridgnorth. Working on the till at the moment which is fun but a little complicated too!

OK - let's get down to business. Today is Saturday which means it's time for
This week we have a sketch - take a look

I'm the Hostess this month so this is my sketch - I made it quite clean and simple as you can see - just three elements!

Here is my card

I stamped a piece of card stock with a music stamp a then die cut it with one of my Window Framelits. I sponged the edges before attaching it to my card blank. My tree was also stamped on to card stock and fussy cut before it too was sponged around the edges - it gives a vintage look to the card don't you think? Finally the same treatment was given to the sentiment and some red gems were added to the tree to brighten it up.

Don't forget to check out all the other lovely cards from my fellow DT over on the blog and I hope it won't be too long till I blog again!!!
See you soon xx
