Being it's the end of August this week, that only leaves approx 3.5 months to get Christmas cards done - so I decided it was time to get into gear and start working on them.
Today's card I'm just smitten with. I love how she turned out, very vintage, love the beige, brown and burgundy together. Here is Uptown Girl Quinn in her boots!
Is she not the cutest? I stamped her on bella's bestest paper then
coloured her with prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.
I layered her onto a piece of PTI fine linen and then a piece of SU bravo burgundy. I then stitched around her and sponged distress inks - antique linen and frayed burlap.
DP is from Simple Stories - Generations - last years release.
Since I wanted her to look kind of vintage, I added a piece of linen lace along the bottom. It still looked a bit plain so added a couple of bella dots and a antique gold snowflake that I have had for ever.
Finished off with some snow along the ground. I used Diamond dust - love this stuff, it's a bit chunky, but so glittery. I first applied some glossy accents and then sprinkled the diamond dust on (glossy accents holds better than just the quickie glue pen).
Don't forget about our 'back to school' challenge for friday. Do you have your card done yet? If not you still have time. Email your card to Emily by thursday night - you could win $20 in bella bucks.
Thanks for visiting today, see you back her on friday.
