Last project of 2013

Here's the last project of 2013 with the wooden shape I bought the other day.  I've used Lavinia stamps as the main image and also for the surrounding frame.  Various Adirondack inks and Tim Holtz black enamel for the stones also a bit of glitter dust and a few little cones and beads. 
Happy new year to you all

A quickie blog and late entry for Lavinia blog challenge for December

I went out looking for bargains at the local craft shop, unfortunately there were none.  I've bought a few shapes to stamp and decoupage.
I've just had a play, inspired by a card made by Eileen Godwin and decided to enter the Lavinia challenge this month.  I've used a small leaf stamp and the fairies dancing, various Adirondack ink pads, some Tim Holtz black enamel and some glitter dust.  This will be an ongoing project but I have to get the basic project in now as there are only a couple more days to go.
Happy new year to all xx

Cards for kids

Had to make 8 more cards for kids, so the boys have got the snowman and the girls have the angels.   All are quite tactile, so hoping they are a success.  The snowmen and the angels were die cut using Marianne dies, the angels had velum over the dress part and some glaze pens to pick a little detail out of.  The snowmen were all mounted an snowy gauze and have different brads in one of their hands.  Sticking the gauze to the card is a bit faffy.  All made with papermill card, linen and hammered.

Tactile card

Today I've spent doing a tactile card for a blind little girl.  The base is Paper Mill. Then a layer of fine material for the topper to rest on.  The topper is made from a piece of white felt, covered with a piece of material that is to mimic snow, then on top is a Hunkydory topper that was left over from last year.  A red pearl for the nose and some glossy accents on the small hearts.  Inside is a musical player which plays Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
I hope it goes down well.
