A little bit of Christmas


I just love the cute little image I used for my card. It had a kind of  a Vintage look to it but I didn't want a full Vintage look for my card if you know what I mean. Anyway this is what I had in mind and I was pleased with the result.
 Here is a little bit of what you need and what  I did to create my card.
I pricked round the edges of a square card, covered it with DP and lightly distressed around the edges with an ink pad.
Cut out 2 shaped layers, one slightly smaller than the other and inked the edges of both pieces.
I stamped the image on the smaller shape and stamped another one to use as a 3D layer on top. I used the second image and  pulled  a little of the ink in with a water pen to create a bit of shading. I Watercoloured the bow and yoke so it would pick up the Red flowers I was using. I cut this out and stuck it over my original image with foam pads to amke it 3D. I fixed the two layers together with foam pads and glued them to  my card.
I fixed Lace just up from the bottom of my card.
I added a double bow made from two different ribbons, to the top left of my card and  added a large flower to the centre of the bow.
I added another of the same, but smaller flower to the to the bottom right of my image.
I finished my card by using to cut scrolls which I ink distressed. and a little bow between the scrolls.
I entered my card into the following challenges:-
