LOTV - Holy Light

Hi everyone,

I have scheduled this post as Phil and I are having a little break in the Peak District, to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary in a couple of weeks time. I love this part of England in the Autumn, the colours can  be beautiful, I just hope the rain holds off and we get a little sunshine, just to bring the colours to life.

I thought I would share a little Christmas card I made using an LOTV image Holy Light, she is one of my favourite images by LOTV. There are a couple that have been released this year, that I am also after. She has been coloured with Copics and a few highlights added with Prisma pencils and I've added some Glamour Dust to her wings and for the lying snow. I stamped her onto a Go Kreate oval die and mounted it onto a Noor Crafts oval die. The Ice Crystals are also  Noor Crafts dies and have been covered with Diamond Dust and  Pearls has been added to the centre. The lace, ribbon, flowers, jingle bells, pearls and gorgeous snowflake button are all from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the materials I used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

Sneaky Tilda

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope you all had a good week. I spent most the day in my craft room on Friday and it was wonderful. I didn't achieve much other than colour one image, but it was just so relaxing. Yesterday was spent doing the housework, cutting the grass and clearing up the leaves and then I retreated to my craft room. Phil is off next week too and we are going to have a couple of days away to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary which is in a couple of weeks time.

I thought I would give you an update on George as some of you have been asking, at the moment he is still on 24 hours notice, which means he could get a call at anytime to say he is flying out to Sierra Leone, I am still praying that, that doesn't happen, but thank you so much for asking. 

Anyway enough of my waffle as we have a new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia  today and this time the theme is 'Autumn Colours'. 

For a change I made a circular easel card using a Spellbinders Grand Circle die. The papers are by Maja and I hand stitched around the outside and then went and covered most of it up, what a numpty.  I stamped up my favourite Tilda, Sneaky Tilda and masked her with Mushroom with Snail stamp, which is quite an oldie and coloured them using Copics and added some highlights with Prisma pencils. Her dress turned out a bit darker than I had intended as I got a bit carried away colouring her. She has been stamped onto Neenah card and cut using a Go Kreate Ovals die and then mounted onto some brown card which I cut using a Go Kreate scalloped die. Behind the oval is a Marianne Heart die mounted onto a paper doily. The leaves have been cut out of copper and olive colour card with a Crealies die, again the die is quite an oldie maybe it's time to invest in some new dies lol. The flowers, lace, pearl string, ric rac, ribbon and cones are all from the Ribbon Girl, links to the products are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.
