Lilith


Hi all
I recently bought some gorgeous new digi images from an amazing artist called Chrisanthi ...you will find the stunning Lilith image I have used here  and many more at Chrisanthi's etsy shop .I coloured her with Copics and promarkers ..The paper is from Robins nest and is  called black herringbone..i won it a year ago in a challenge and it was just perfect for this project. I used my new sweet Dixie oval die around the image.The handmade flower is made using the sue Wilson classic rose die.The filigree bow is also made  from  a sue Wilson die. The washi tape and charm are from my stash. The swirls are dies from memory box.The sentiment is a stamp from paper pretties.

christmas snowflake hanger

Hi all
I did a Christmas demo yesterday and still felt in the Christmas crafting mood so I make this 22cm high snowflake wall hanging...I used silent night papers from Trimcraft which I distressed with antique linen distress ink. I punched some snowflakes, made a rosette for the centre using a TH die. I added the ribbon and hey ho there it is. I really quite like it ...that is something coming from me as I don't particularly like Christmas decorations at all
