Silent night, holy night


This is another design team inspiration card for the Glory of Christmas 21: turquoise and brown. The background is a piece of Kanban striped card on to which I've layered a piece of brown ribbon that was upcycled from a box received, matted on to an offcut of gingham card. The image was rescued from a Christmas card received a couple of years ago.

Dare to be sassy 205: R U green - recycle

The Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 74: decorating continues


This is my design creation for the second week of the Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 74: decorating continues. Please click on the link and see the lovely creations of the rest of the team and join in the challenge - perhaps you might want to show a card with embellishments decorating it, or perhaps a Christmas decoration ... the choice is yours - it would be great to see what it prompts you to make. You can link up your entries here. The challenge is being sponsored by Floppy Latte.

This time I decided to decorate my craft room window.

I used Floppy Latte 'angel' digital image, printed on to a sheet of heat resistant acetate and then quickly heat embossed with clear powder. I then used alcohol inks to colour - butterscotch, terra cotta and currant. This 'stained glass' angel now decorates the window of my craft room.
