my favourite so far

For some reason this one sings to me, which I wouldnt have thought from the starting point, but its amazing how a design can develop.
Again, a bargain from the boys over at Kraftyhands: http://www.kraftyhandsonline.co.uk/webshop/prod_2962805-Christmas-Die-Cut-Mega-Bundle-19-Sheet-Set.html


so starting point was the main image, on a white square background. so first step, distress with old paper! get rid of so much white! then choose the card colours, I took the red from the Angels dress, and the lighter older green of the tree.
so to make it pop a bit more, I matted and layered on Black pearlised paper. the Green is embossilicious  Poinsettias sanded back on core-dinations cardstock. a few Cosmic shimmer pearl dots for the visible centres of the poinsettias
the die is cheery lynn, holly flourish, some lime organza ribbon, and an ezi-bloom from the boys over at Kraftyhands.
the word Nan was created using a mixture of Crafters companion 1 inch dies, and Cheery lynns script die, and glued to the black pearlised paper, before cutting round to create a shadow layer.
on the topper there is glitter as can be seen in the top picture, some cosmic shimmer pearlised glues for the tree baubles, and the whole reason for 2 photos, is the mica I added to the angels wing, catch it right it shines, dont and it doesnt, so it grabs the eye when it does

wow that was a long post from me!
