I hope your week has been going well. I recently worked on a couple more cards for Designs by Ryn . This time using her beautiful Celtic Doves with traditional styles for Christmas.
I'm also very excited to tell you that Eileen Godwin of Eileen's Crafty Zone has joined Ryn's Design Team ! I'm honored to be working on the same team with such a talented lady ! If you have a chance, please visit her blog to see her gorgeous designs here.
I apologize but again I had a difficult time trying to capture the colors on these cards properly. Some days colors just don't want to show their true shade and this is one of them.
For the above card I used Design by Ryn's , Celtic Dove Set CM-C10. I also used Impression Obsession - Cover a Card Flourishes CC027 and 'Christmas Magic' B3585.
I started with a green patterned designer paper sheet and embossed the Flourish CAC with Gold. I also embossed the Doves and Sentiment with Gold. I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink around the outside of the images.
For this next card I used bleach around the images to highlight them on black card stock:
I embossed the doves with black on black card stock and used bleach to highlight the images. I guess this one is not so traditional with black & cream and could be used for another occasion other than Christmas.
We have a load of soil sitting in our driveway waiting for us to move it. We had an awful time this summer with grubs & then skunks digging them up which damaged a good portion of our lawn. We are working on an Acre property and even with all the gardens, we still have lots of grass. So you know what we are doing this weekend :) Lots of wheeling soil and raking it in. We'll take a break here & there and maybe enjoy a cold beer !
That's all for today, thanks for your visit & have a great long weekend (it's a holiday weekend here in Canada),
