A little bit of LOTV...

Hi all

Just dropped in with a quickie... I tried to do a very CAS card - but with an image... as I've seen them done, but not sure if I'm totally happy with this!

I used an LOTV image - Angels with Crib - that I've had for a long, long time!!  I tried to feather out the colour on their dresses using a blender... this is my first attempt at this technique, and I've got considerably better on my second card (to be blogged soon...)


That is pretty much all there is too it... coloured with copics and promarkers... and of course glitter on their wings and stars... a bit of sewing around the edge (it's my sewing machine that goes crooked, not me!!), a bit of bazzil, and then a sentiment from Pink Petticoat (Handwritten Christmas Greetings).

And the good bit is... there's nothing too thick for Royal Mail normal letter!!

Now... I have a very special visitor coming over the Pennines to see me tomorrow... it's the lovely Elaine...  so I best go tidy up!!  She's warned me that I need to have the red carpet rolled out, but I told her it's at the cleaners!

Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave - reading them makes my day!
Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting....
