Yes I've discovered Twinklets (I know where have I been) well infact I bought these last year and hardly used them I don't know why as they're fab and look so effective and add great texture to your Chrimbly cards.
Well I hope you're having a good week so far. Its rather wet and blustery here today so no intention of venturing out until I pick the kiddies up (unless I can talk hubby into doing it!!!!). He's working at home today and I never seem to get much done when he's at home.
We were woken up at 6 a.m. this morning by my sister phoning from the hospital to say she'd just had her little girl weighing in at a healthy 7lb and they're both doing fine. I'm so excited can't wait to see them but I shall give her some breathing space before we descend on them.
Okay back to my card. Once again I made this following a fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl but never made the deadline but here it is anyway. I'm using kraft again to mat everything - just love it.
The image is such a sweetie from Sugar Nellie coloured with Distress Markers and lots of Stickles. Papers are a download from Nitwits called Heavenly which have been distressed with walnut stain distress ink. The trees are a die from Marianne Design and I added Tim Holtz crackle paint and when that was dry some glue and Twinklets. Not sure where the sentiment is from its a diecut I found on my rummage and I just added a little charm to it.
A close up of the image and you can just see the trees too. I was so pleased with how the image turned out. I'm still learning with the distress markers but no doubt I'll get there eventually, at least it didn't end up in the bin!.
Another close up this time of the little cones my kiddiewinkles helped me collect when we went on a little jaunt the other week. I've crackled them again with the Tim Holtz paint and dunked them in Twinklets. Love how they've turned out and I can see me using the Twinklets as much as I do Stickles. The little berries started out life as red ones but I crackled them and then used some silver rub on and then went over with a little pink.
Okay no more waffle from me. Someone told me yesterday that its 91 days til Christmas well now thats just put me in panic mode so after my two little ones birthdays in October YES both in one month what was I thinking, its gonna be head down and cracking on with Chrimbo projects.
