Sweet Christmas Dreams

Hi everyone,

I've patiently been practicing with my distress inks and I'm getting quite happy with my results. I know I have a long way to go to get to the standard of some of the people out there, but for me I'm quite happy.

I thought I'd have a play round and I've seen some fantastic cards out in blogland that are shaped, so I thought I'd give it a whirl, something which I will be doing again ;). I've had some cheesecloth in for ages and this is the first time I've plucked up the courage to actually use it.
I was so busy the last few weeks it's on;y the last few days I've had chance to ink up my new Christmas Tilda's, I love them all. I tried to only get a few, but when I was looking through them so see which I should use first I decided I needed some more, oops.

I've used go kreate dies to cut out my card and the other shaped papers. The magnolia papers are also from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams range. Ive coloured Tilda in with distress inks, and have used white acrylic paint round the edges to tone the purple down a tad. Ive used a doohickey snowflake and flowers and lace are from WOC. There is also some subtle glamour dust sparkle added to Tilda.

I'm entering my card into Totally Tilda, 'Christmas with no red, green or blue'. Also, I'm entering it into Just Magnolia & hAnglar stAnglar 'Anything goes, with the option of using pearls and lace', well I got the lace on there.

Take care,
