Red, gold and green...

Sorry for the late post, for some reason blogger wasn't letting me upload photos... Anyway seems to be fixed now!

So onto this weeks Creative Inspirations card! The theme is red, green and gold, so this is what I came up with....................

There's a lot of gold snowflakes around Tilda which are more clear in the photo below...

I've used stickles stardust under her feet, and lots of sakura gelly roll in clear star. The mistletoe is added to with perfect pearls ice white, and the gingerbread in her pockets has clear gloss on some bits, and crackle glaze on others (again, not too clear on here!). I've gone around the whole card with viva decor pearl pen in bronze, it's really more of a metallic red as you can see. All edges are edged with walnut stain and then stickled with diamond stickles. The tilda piece has been distressed with tea dye distress ink.

Stamps: Tilda with Mistletoe (Magnolia), snowflakes (molly blooms)
Doohicky lace die
Embellishments: stickles (diamond and stardust); ribbon (Boyes); viva decor pearl pen (bronze)
colouring: distrss inks (peeled paint, worn brick, walnut stain, weathered wood; skin copics, hair brushstrokes pens
