Season's Tweetings

Famous last words, heh, 'More Time to Blog'. I don't think so. I don't know where the time has gone or what I've been doing since my last post, but apologies for lack of visiting and uploading.

Here is another Elzybells card, as you know I love these stamps and this is yet another favourite. The background is done the same as my previous Reindeer card, an Elzybells snowflake stamp using Versacolor, Polar Blue. The sentiment is also from Elzybells. The image has been coloured with Prisma pencils. The snowflake is a Sizzix die and I've covered it with Diamond Dust from Twinklets, this is fab stuff, it looks all crusty and sparkly. I found this on Joanna Sheen's website, it's crushed glass and imo much better than any glitter. I've done a little close up, but don't think I can do it justice on a photo.
Sorry the photo's are a bit dark, I couldn't find a light enough spot now that the days are drab and miserable.

I did something a bit different with this next card. Not a single stamp in sight. I found this vintage car stencil amongst my stash and dug out the 3D relief paste I bought yonks ago and never used. The glitter is from Art Institute and gives a lovely sparkle. I wanted to do a DL size for a change, so added the side panel which was done with a Lace stencil. I mounted both onto some gold mirror card, I'm quite please how it's turned out.
