Welcome Christmas....


It is such a cold and crispy morning but with beautiful sunshine here. Hope you too are enjoying beautiful autumn weather. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you all for your lovely caring wishes for Luca. I told him and he was very happy. The operation went really well and he is back to normal, his happy, bouncing enjoying life to the full self. Your support means so much to me so big hugs to you all!

I got my Magnolia Stamp Club Kit in the post and they are so sweet! Just had to ink up this little sweetie. I have stamped her with Versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm hp water colour paper. 

The flowers are sprayed with iridescent gold glimmer mist. 

I stamped the snowflake stamps with Stazon brown onto acetate and on the reverse side to the ink I covered the image with dries clear glue and sprinkled this with glitter. Then when dry I cut the snowflakes out. I clear embossed the sentiment which I stamped with Aged Mahogany. 

Thank you so very much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful day!

Hi and thank you so much for your comment, it made me so glad! :) I don't know if you just looked at the pictures or if you translated and read the text as well, but it was my first time masking stamps and well, it was quite okay I think? :)
