My Lovely Friends,

Saturday, 29 October 2011

Sent with love,

Can you believe another Christmas card from me! I mean you know I don't do Christmas till the middle of November lol,
our challenge today over at Basic Grey is
Anything goes
a lovely one for you, just remember to use a Basic Grey product and tell us which you have used,
I've used Basic grey papers from the Curio and Jovial pads,
my image is coloured with copics and her heart snow ball and snow flakes/drops are made using liquid applique again,
I have made a shaker card using the ovals and this other spellbinders  die which I must find out which one it is and also on the outside painted the edges with white crackle paint so loving this grunge look, yes I know I've told you before lol,
for a change I have torn my paper a little narrower to allow for the snowflake die to be used,
I have also used the doo Hickey dies of tag, and fence and used a quick cutz key die plus a Marianne heart die all these have been given the crackle treatment too,
The acetate front has some added lines on it which I did with my scor pal but you can't pick these up clearly on here, I will upload another later this week which I have done the same thing too and you will be able to see it on  that one hopefully lol,

I've made it so the tag can be removed for the verse to be read and then can be replaced is needed,
I left this fairly simple just edged the tag with vintage photo distress ink to match the paper edges and main frame,
the flowers I added a little white crackle paint too on the edges, quite like it too,

Aww, Liz, who doesn’t love this Tilda—she’s just too adorable. Your colouring is fabulous—love the colour scheme also. Love the shaker card idea and the hidden tag. And I have a tube of that liquid appliqué that a friend send me. I can’t wait to try it out. Terrific job on the card. Love it.
Hugs,
Norma
