I do hope your Christmas festivities were enjoyable and you had many crafty presents, I had some I am pleased to say.
We had a lovely day, the weather was warm so we ate out on the Patio.
I cannot believe Christmas is over and 2012 beckons.
One of my presents that I received from my daughter was the TH 'On the Edge' distressed doily Die, and I was impatient to create a card with it.
I found some PP in my stash and some purple CS, so I cut twice and used the purple CS as a shadow effect to the PP.
Purple is a glorious colour, it is sensual and spiritual--------and has a certain sense of daring, the lavender is the softer side of this hue, it brings a delicacy and refinement to any creation, and the colour lavender suggests something unique.
Using White as my accent gives a pristine contrast, (warm and cool tones).
The PP had a flower design imprinted on the bottom, so I fussy cut them out and mounted them onto my Bg and also spotlighted one onto my Spellbinders 'Floral Doily'.
I cut two circles with SB and inked them up with dusty concord and stormy sky and mounted the flower outside the frame.
The flourish was stamped with aged mahogany distress ink.
I also used dimensional tape to raise one of the little flowers.
And to finish it all off a lavender bow and sequins.
