I have wanted to play over at Crafty Individuals for some time but not owning many of their products I have not had anything to fit in with the themes - until this month wah hoo! The theme this month is Winged Things and I have a Crafty Individuals stamp that fits! I'm loving the new stamps and papers and I need them to come to live with me, so don't think it will be long before I have more CI products to play with :-))
I had been playing with a technique in November Craft Stamper Crinkled Ink by Jo Capper Sandon, I won't describe the process as that would be unfair, pop over to craft stamper and find her link there, but it is a technique revisited for me that I had forgotten about so I had fun and got inky too :-). So armed with a background I then stamped my image CI 056 Angel onto this background, then stamped snowflakes with distress inks added the words peace and glitter to the wings and the snowflake which was cut with Nestabilities and was sitting on my desk saying use me! use me! lol. On reflection I think it may be a little too large but I liked the effect so I ran with it.
Its official I have made my first Christmas Card...............! Hope you like it
