House Mouse and Friends challenge #246 - Christmas in July, Just Us Girls week 404 - Use something old &/or new, and Simon Says Monday challenge - You've Got the Edge - have your project draw your eye to the edge.
I used a very old House Mouse stamp, and stamped my image three times so I could do a little bit of paper-tolling to add some interest to the card. I coloured my images with Brushos and then fussy cut them out and used foam tape to mount them. I chose this designer paper so I could cut around some of the berries and cone and slip my panel under to give some interest to the edge. Then I layered onto deep red card and checked paper to match the ribbon on the dp to create a frame. I used a new die to cut a couple of pine cones, coloured them and adhered dark brown card to the back and attached them with a matching bow. To finish I added some shine to the candle stick with silver gel pen and gold inference powder around the flame. I am also posting to Watercooler Wednesday challenge WWC129 - All About Christmas and to Merry Monday - Christmas in July Summer Link-up - as inspiration challenge #246
I had to add this photo which I took by my winder and thought it looked lovely with the sunlight on it.
