The Cruelty of Christmas
Cruel? Well, Christmas seems the ideal time to make over-the-top sparkly creations with a sleigh-load of embellishments, jingle-bells and all . Yet..... what I'm actually making is quick and easy, make-as-many-as-you-can, FLAT cards , that can be sent in the post.
This card wasn't quick and easy, to be honest, but it IS pretty flat. You can't see it. but I painted my white cardstock with Pearl -EX paint before stamping, to give it shimmer. I coloured the angel (Non-Sequitur, very old and well-used) with Promarkers and Pearl -Ex paint. I made the background using stamps, white embossing powder and distress inks. I added a brad and a final glitz of glitter spray (which again, you can't see!) .
