How exciting to be posting my first DT card for Elphine House Australia using this Christmas image by Elisabeth Bell named Danny Boy Jingle Bells. The stamp was originally released in 2008 to Sugar Nellie and just newly released at Elphine House.
The challenge this fortnight is to use stitching (Faux or real) and add some distressing. Couldn't get my machine to sew 34 gauge gold wire so I used a gold metallic Uniball pen for the Faux stitching which is NOT showing up as I had hoped in this photo. There's lots of shine and glitz and I'm hoping it's showing up for you. Here is a list of what I used on the card: Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink - Aqua, Silver, and Magenta Stickles - Diamond Glaze - Crushed Velvet Flock, MS Snowflake Punch - Gold Tuille - Snow Tex and Snow Crystals - Jingle Bells. I used so many darn Copics thought it easier to just take a picture to share......lol I added the Diamond Glaze to the Berries, bells on the sled, railing and skis. Sentiment is computer generated.
Here's a sneak peek at the inside.
Sure hope you can play along with us for this fun challenge. Be sure to stop by the Elphine House Challenge blog to see the wonderful inspiration by the amazing ladies on the team. Their coloring and designs are so fantastic you won't want to miss them.
