Santa's Wish


I've combined T!m's Santa's Wish stamps with USArtQuest products for this card.

I used distress inks for the stamping, the largest labels 8 nestie for the main panel and the Christmas Wishes stamp from AOD 33 Holly Sprays.

The background on the base card is made using the Vintage set of USArtQuest watercolour micas.

I used several strips of great tape down the border and a little way across the bottom of the card.  I ruched the glue strips to created a faux lace effect.  I then sprinkled on mother of pearl and copper mica flakes.  The copper mica flakes have a verdi gris mix/effect which is yummy!


Oh, I just love all those bits of shimmery magic!!

I hope you have a good day.

Jill

  2. Hi Jill. Thanks so much for visiting me! I love the muted colours of this card!

    Hope you are enjoying your week off!

    As for me - resting is definitely helping. However as soon as I start typing on the computer it all comes flooding back!
