Merry Christmas From The Wee Folk

Good evening. I hope you've had a good day. I've spent the last few days sewing - I've finished my flapper dress for the Mess Summer Ball and had enough fabric left over to make a matching evening bag for me and a tie for Hubby (if he'll wear it - he's not convinced that matching clothes are a good look but I know it will look fab with his pinstripe suit). I'll blog some photos after the do. The tie may or may not be being worn!

Thank you for the comments on my last post; it was interesting to see which were your favourites.

Today's card is the other one that I made for this month's Claritystamp show.

I started off by stamping the Merry Christmas stamp in Jet Black Archival ink, then I added the Wee Folk to it. Merry Christmas is coloured in with a red Sakura Stardust pen so it has a lovely shimmer that doesn't really show up in the photo.

I added some Distress Ink with a Claritystamp stencil brush to tone down the white card so that it blended better with the backing card, which is from an old Kanban kit. I used the same card with a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die to make the flower. The leaves are cut with a Joanna Sheen die - Ivy Flourish.

I'd better go and tidy up my craft room now. I thought it looked bad after I've been card making but it looks even worse after I've been sewing!!!!
