A Card For My Christmas Stash & Trying A New Toy
Today my lovelies, I have a card that I made a couple of days ago, but I didn't post it then as I have been trying out a new 'toy' . . . a light-box DH bought me for my birthday - because the lighting this time of year here in my part of the world is very unpredictable! My good friend Loll of Stamping With Loll was helping me decide whether it was worth it or not, as I was unsure. We decided that it was, so here are those pictures.
For this simple card, all I did, was make a circle mask, by cutting a circle out of a piece of copy paper and lightly sponge some distress ink through the stencil and then spread some sparkle gel through a stencil, the name of which escapes me at the moment as this was just to try out the light-box. The panel was cut out with a WPlus9 die from the 'Sunshine Layers' set.
I finished off with some silver twine from Stampin' Up and a blue gem, stamped the greeting from a Crafty Impression set called, 'Christmas Bauble Sentiments' with Encore Silver pigment ink, brushed with silver Perfect Pearls powder and then mounted on to a base card with foam tape.
Thank you for visiting today and for your kind comments! Have a great day! Hazel xx
