Green & Blue Christmas Magic

Hello dear blog friends I hope you are doing well.  I managed to get back into the craft room, life is getting back to normal, it's wonderful :)

I'm on the same colour theme, but this time for Christmas using a beautiful new stamp set that was released this month by Chocolate Baroque and I couldn't resist ordering.   I love the 'negative' style snowflakes.  I'm looking forward to be back 'working' with the Design Team soon.


Chocolate Baroque stamp sets used for above card:  A Child is Born and Christmas Magic.  The pretty die cut snowflakes are by Joy.

The background for this card was created again with Dylusions inks and gold Glimmermist spray.  I added some 'blobs' of Gesso as well.   I stamped over the background using a couple of the snowflakes from the set.  I coloured the angel with Inktense pencils and added lots of stickles.

Here is a look at the complete stamp set, it's gorgeous:



Well that's all for this morning, thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirley x
