A new lovely card today!

Hello!

After 6 days of not leaving my house due to feeling really poorly, today we decided to go for a walk in the local park with Alaia. Fresh air!!! oh I missed it!
Alaia is on school mid-term break at the moment and she has been really bored due to me being ill and all,  but she joins me in the card making and loves it. She is becoming really artistic!

So today's card... I made the card following some challenges guidelines that I wanted to enter.
 I used this amazing Saturated Canary Stamp called "Christmas Angel". The theme of it is Shabby Chic; mixing pink, white and brown colours; with snowflakes, a tag and sentiment.


I have distressed all the card and paper with sandpaper and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen to give the card the old effect of Shabby Chic. The papers I've used are from Princess Fairytale collection by Dovecraft and by K&Company.

I coloured the Saturated Canary image with my Promarkers: for the hair I used Buttermilk and Sandstone blended with the Blender Pen; for the face, I used Sandstone, Vanilla, Eggnog, Blossom and the Blender pen; for the outfit I used Pink Carnation, Blossom, Pale Pink, Sandstone and Buttermilk.  I used Pale pink for the wings and added some glitter for the Sparkly effect!


The lovely sentiment I've used it's a freebie from Tidbits Trinkets. I distressed the borders with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen and  put in on a brown handmade tag.



The snowflakes are Die Cuts from Joycrafts. The flowers, lace, brads and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
