Yet again i seem to have done a card that looks nothing like the inspiration card!BUT...
Chriss herself gave me the inspiration for my card ,because when i read how she had done it she mentioned you could use trees,and the rest was history!Let me explain :)...
I recently got the Clearly besotted modern tree die and have been itching to use it so made stripes using SU solid stripe stamp in lost lagoon and real red and diecut them diagonal.To add texture I embossed the background with a dotty embossing folder.Then mounted it on a panel of lost lagoon.No suprise there I hear you say!!!
Then I added some perfect pearls on the trees using the colours bisque and white which thought would take in the rest of the colours on Chriss's glorious mittens!
FinallyI popped my trees like Chriss did and added a bit of twine (which is unusual for me as I always get in such a kerfuffle with twine and ribbon!) and added the sentiment under my images ,just like Chriss and the sprig of holly?well that is entirely all my own idea!
So can you see where my inspiration came from now ??
Now I must get on with the packing as an incentive I moved the clothes that were strewn all around the spare room into our room so that if they don't get in a case then we don't get into bed tonight...dont think its working because here I am on the computer to get away from the mess lol and Arydth if your reading this at the moment it is 14degrees here and pouring brrrr and I made the mistake of looking at the weather where we are going (to help me pack you understand) and it is rain and more rain and some are not much warmer than here ...how am I meant to pack for that,thermals and layers I fear! hee he
Honestly this is my last post until after our holiday..which i am sure will be great how could it not !
so thanks for taking the time to look.
