Silent Night

Hi everyone, quick post with a little Christmas card using the lovely new "Little Town of Bethlehem" dies.

I made a background and painted the "buildings" using powdered pigments mixed with water, simples! It looks so much better IRL, the light is not great this time of year, I used flash but it's not ideal.

I have made a card for the CAS Watercolour Challenge - Maple Leaf.

The leaf was die-cut from mixed media paper, I misted with water and sprinkled shimmer powders until happy with the result. The background is crackle paste and distress crayon and I added some "dew drop" glossy accents.

Inspired by the beautiful photo at Uniko (Anything Goes with optional twist of autumn), I used a Uniko leaf stencil to make the background.

Two butterflies

Butterflies and watercolour is a lovely combination so I couldn't resist making another card to play along at CAS Watercolour.

The butterflies were heat embossed in black and water coloured with distress inks.

Christmas glitter

Just a quick post to show you my card for the CAS Christmas 'glitter' challenge.

I die-cut the ornament in two different colours of glitter card and pieced them together. Sentiment heat embossed in gold.

Paper towel on a gelli plate

The challenge at CAS Mix Up is 'Paper Towel' and I've been experimenting with paper towel (cut into circles) and spray inks on a gelli plate.  I confess I was a bit stumped about how to use the prints on a CAS card (and I hope this is CAS enough). So quite simply the background was die-cut and stamped. 

Here are the other backgrounds.
