New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and enjoying the warm weather in the U.K. at the moment. 

We have a new challenge at Ally's Angels this evening and as always the theme is........

Anything Goes

I have just made a start on my Christmas cards, even though the sun is shining brightly:) This sweet stamp is a real oldie. The stamp is made by Flower Soft from the Moments in Time collection  and is called Let it Snow.

I have used distress reinkers to colour the scene, I really love the cold hues of blue and grey together.

Around the outside of the image I have sprinkled some shabby white frantage to give the effect of falling snow.

The papers are from my stash and I have painted some white gesso around the edges just because I love the look of it on winter cards.

Again the dies I have used are very old ones which are a mixture of magnolia and joy craft dies. 

The distress inks I have used are: Hickory smoke, weathered wood and black soot.

Ally is giving away this gorgeous stamp to the lucky winner:

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
