CSD New Release - Christmas in July

Exciting news!!

The Christmas in July new release at Crafty Sentiments Designs is here with a brand new set of stamps being released on the 25th July.  Pop over to the inspiration blog to see the awesome projects from the talented Design Team.

For my project I had the super cute 'Hark the Angels Sing' stamp.  I coloured her using my spectrum noir markers and tried to give the effect of candle light.  It was my first attempt at this technique but I'm pleased with the result.

I thought she would look fab in a frame, so I made my own deep box frame out of white A3 card.  I've matted silver mirror board with a Christmas paper from BoBunny.   I cut the Angel out using an xcut circle die that I edged with silver ink

I've used Tattered Lace Lavish Poinsettia dies to decorate the frame that I've heat embossed with Christmas tinsel embossing powder

I've also used the Tattered Lace dies around the image to give a bit more depth.  I used a sheet of acetate over the picture and finished it off with a few pearls, a bow and of course a bell :)
