We just got home this morning from spending 3 weeks in Canada with our lovely daughter and her boyfriend, we had a fab time, lots of snow and sub zero temps, but it was lovely, crisp and dry cold unlike the damp, dull weather we've returned to, ho hum, it's good to be home though.
So today I'm sharing my creations for this months Creative Challenge for Lavinia Stamps the theme for the month is "Starry Night Skies" you could win £40 to spend on Lavinia Stamp products and you don't need a blog to enter just click on the highlighted link above for all the info.
My first card I've used die cuts and coloured using distress inks and stamping with Trailing Ivy and Stars, and part of Christmas blessings sentiment, very simple card.
My second card I started by using a heavy gesso through a distressed stars stencil, once dry I inked over using distress inks, I used another star stencil with an orange ink and stamped over using the Mini Star Group, Harmony, and part of the Christmas Blessings stamps in Black Versafine ink and then using Versamark Inkpad I stamped Trailing Ivy and Forest Spruce and a few more stars and heat embossed using a glittery gold embossing powder, the Ivy is actually a glittery teal embossing powder, its a bit more subtle in the photo, it looks better in the flesh.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you like my cards and I've inspired you to join in the challenge.
Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
