Darcy's Christmas Tree.

Not long to go now, and here is the lovely Darcy Wilkinson's glorious christmas tree.
I have used this stamp many times and love to play with it.
Here, I have stamped it four times onto some Christmas paper stash and layered it. Inked the edges with good old Distress Vintage Photo and added watercolour pens, some Glossy Accents and Stickles. I used Pinflair Glue in big splurges to create the 3D effect.
There is still time to join in with the challenge over on the Country View Crafts blog.

Products Used:- EDY04 stamp.

Mail Art

I was so inspired by Darcy's presentation of mail Art that I had to contribute.

First I selected a lovely old used brown envelope that came from France.
Using Distress sprays Ground Espresso, Hickory smoke, Tattered Rose and Faded Jeans, I applied the inks Wrinkle Free Distress style. 
Next, I printed with Black Archival using some of my favourite stamps from Paperartsy, HP1506; HP1507. also added some postmark stamps and some PA mini stamps. 
I painted in some of the images with Broken China Distress stain.
Finally, I added some stamps which I aged and a sentiment from TH Chitchat. 
I am happy to enter this into the Paperartsy challenge.

Let it Snow

Here we are....December exciting....and here is my first Christmas piece for Country View Crafts.
I began with a plain piece of silver Mirri card and used Leonie Pujol's fab embossing folder entitled "Let It Snow".
Next, I stamped a Paperartsy Home stamp HP1601 onto white card with Black archival and cut it out. i coloured in the windows with yellow Posca pen and attached it to the background. Added some snow and sparkle and mounted it onto a card. 
Used peel off greeting to tie in with my theme.
I hope that you like.
