Dancing in the snow
Oh my, what an awful photo! But it's so grey and gloomy today that this was the best of a bad lot! The purples are MUCH prettier in real life!
I made an easel base from a 5" card and stuck the matted image to the flap, a nice simple way to make an easel! This darling image is Christmas Dance from Lili of the Valley. She makes me smile! I coloured her with Spectrum Noirs but I forgot to list them! (Slapped wrist!) There are gold stickles on the stars, and Diamond stickles on the snow.
The papers are Nitwits - I think they're both from the 'Still Joyful Hearts' collection, but I forgot to note the name of the set on the back - it's been a very forgetful week, I'm afraid!
The sentiment, which is raised on foam pads to make the stop, is also LotV. I used a Woodware corner punch on the image and sentiment for added interest. The Poinsettia is a Marianne die. The ribbon is from stash, and the rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts. Finally I added some Paperchase stickers.
I'm entering this for the current LotV Challenge which this time is 'Anything Goes.'
I really enjoyed going back to a smaller scale, and this type of easel is so quick and easy, I'll be making more (lots, lots more!) this Christmas!
Ok, tea break is over, time to get back to clearing out the boxes under the bed! Oh, the dust!!
Stay warm and dry on this damp grey day! Thanks for looking!
