Lucia - Tilda with Candle

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are having a good week. It is still hectic for me as there is lots of data to analyse before the end of term, but it's not long to go now before we finish for the summer - yay.  I really haven't got very far with any crafting this week, I am very tired and it is  getting very hot here in the south of the U.K., and  annoyingly I am struggling to get my pens to blend.  A group of us are off to have dinner at a local pub after work today and then head back to see the school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The rehearsals sound amazing so I am looking forward to it. 

That is enough rambling from me,  here is another Christmas card I have made that I am quite pleased with. She is called Lucia - Tilda with Candle and I have masked her with a real favourite of mine, Old Swedish Church.  I loved colouring her dress and I think the pleats have turned out quite well. I have sprinkled some Frantage around the image, which gives a lovely snowy effect. I know you can't see the papers very well, but for a change they are by Pion and called Icicles. Tucked behind the image is some corrugated card which I have also added some Frantage to and a lovely paper doily. The die on the right is a Magnolia So Wrapped So Lovely die. The flowers are from my stash and have had some Diamond Dust sprinkled over them to give a real frosty effect and I have painted some Gesso on the fir cones. I bought the sweet little snowballs from a local craft fair that I went to recently and the fir branches are a Joy Crafts die. The beautiful lace is from the  Ribbon Girl links are at the bottom of this post.
