We've been through a challenging few days here in Ontario, Canada with freezing rain for more than 48 hours. Driving has been dangerous, we have a thick coating of ice over everything. Unfortunately older trees suffered and have broken limbs or are completely down. Hydro has been out all over the province, but we were lucky to have to have it working for periods but then leave us again. Each time it comes back we are hopeful it will stay. We took a careful walk and were amazed at the magical ice land that is around us. Because it was so dark the photos didn't turn out well. If the sun comes out, I'll try again.
I'm showing the last two Christmas designs for this year which feature Chocolate Baroque's beautiful Big Bold Background - Holly.
The Holly background was stamped with Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough Distress inks. The sweet robin is from Chocolate Baroque's Christmas Song. I stamped the bird with red dye ink and the rest with Evergreen Bough DI. I spritzed a little water before stamping.I used the same Holly background below:
I stamped the Holly background with several shades of green memento inks. Merry Christmas is from the Warm Christmas Greetings clear set. The poinsettia die is by Spellbinder and the Holly Flourish is by Cheery Lynn. I used white card stock to create the flower which I coloured with Distress Inks and added lots of glitter. The center is a button with glitter around the edge and a large rhinestone in the center.
Season's Greetings !
