All dressed up for Christmas

Hi everyone

Woo hoo - I've managed a midweek post!  I have managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting over the last couple of days - however not as much as I'd like as I have been catching up with those household chores as well as doing some school visits so I can choose a school for Harrison next September. sob sob!

My followers will know the All dressed up are my favourite digi stamps, and as they are having a DT call, it would be rude not to have a go!

The stamp is called Happy Christmas little star, and shes been coloured with promarkers.  Around the edge is aged aqua embossing enamel and chunky white (both frantage).  the papers are from a digi kit by nitwit and its been aged using a technique I recently learned at my fortnightly workshop (thanks Sue!). Using a very dry flat brush and gesso,  lightly pull the loaded brush across the card and it makes it look like its been sanded and aged.  The blue panel has been run through an embossing folder with some blue/white spotty ribbon.  The sentiments are a combination of Lili of the valley and Crafters companion Christmas magic stamps.  the flowers are Sue Wilson dies

Hope you like it!  thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my ramblings....
