I am enjoying my break from work and today I would like to share some more of my playing with you but do hop over to the main challenge site and check out the gorgeous inspiration from my sister meeces.
I made a Christmas Card
I sat and coloured this one up whilst tanning my not so lily white legs :)
The base layer is a card from the Hobby House, lovely shaping and I have edged it with gold from a Brilliance ink pad.  The next layer is some gold mirror card and this is the contrast too.  I then got out some of my old but much loved papers, the red, green and cream tones are all very vintage, so when colouring had to ensure that my colours were the right shade.  I added some lace from the Hobby House, unfortunately this is only sold currently in the shop.  I also added some lovely Christmas claret and gold ribbon, it is wire edged so I creased it and created a little curtain under the image.  I added some antique snowflakes and Pearls from the Hobby House along with a shapeology die and matching stamp and a little twine for the sentiment.  There is a link in my sidebar to the Hobby House shop.

If you are asking where my wet embossing is well here is the image on close up coloured with copics and a little sprinkling of fran tage, which has been heat embossed.
Do hop over and join us for the challenge :) we would love to see you there.

 Don't forget, you too may submit your House-Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers creations directly to THE Official House-Mouse Designs site found HERE!
