More Modern Christmas...
Firstly I just wanted to let all my blog family know that I have updated the side bar to include all the Hochanda shows I have coming up in the next couple of months. I have also listed demos and workshops for the next few weeks just look to the right to see the details.
back to today and another sample made for the shows on Monday and Tuesday. This time it is a modern twist on the traditional christmas rose stamp and die set and its really easy to achieve honest!
The background is made with kitchen roll ( I originally typed troll in there but luckily spotted it rare for me I know!) which i used to wipe up pixie powder water coloured with midnight blue and a lot of aqua lagoon. once dry I added this to a piece of card using cosmic shimmer glossy glue, seal and glaze. I added random gilding flakes ( the rubble leftover if you have seen me using these) and added a last coat of the glue, seal and glaze. Once dry, about 20 minutes, I cut the card down to an 7 x 7" piece and matted this onto silver, cobalt and spearmint foundation card.
Next for the flowers I stamped my Christmas rose elements clear stamp set, to avoid confusion there are 2 sets of stamps that match the christmas rose die I use the clear set no my projects shown not the rubber set as this is a different design. I stamped these in jet black archival ink onto another piece of the kitchen roll paper this time one with more of the midnight blue pixie powder.
I shaped the flowers using a ball tool and stamping mat and simply added these at the bottom over a strip of silver ribbon i had stretched down the side of the background. I then cut the matching holly spray and rose leaves from the christmas rose die set and scary glued these before adding diamond sprinkles. I arranged these around and between the roses along with a messy bow tied in silver ribbon.
A simple modern card hopefully with a traditional twist!
