All Dressed Up - September Launch..


Hi Ladies

Well....... is this year disappearing fast or WHAT??  Here I am, onto making Christmas cards...  yes it's early for me...  but I couldn't resist this little cutie from the new launch at All Dressed Up!

Let me introduce you to Little Christmas Girl 03!  She was a dream to colour (with Copics)  and fussy cut as always.  For the card, I decided to do relatively CAS..... so I did a Distress Ink sky (a la Viv Holden who'd seen the idea on YouTube)... using an ink blender, with Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot (in that order).  The first you use all over the sky.... then gradually layer the rest, ending with the Black Soot only about a third of the way down from the top.  I dotted stars with Stickles then I cut and glittered some 'hills'!

  Then I took another piece of white card, and cut an aperture using a Lil' Inkers stitched circle die.  I raised that up on foam pads to give a bit of depth, put the Little Christmas Girl on the card, then added a sentiment (from Poppy Stamps) - with a rustic bow to finish.  Oh, and I found a tiny star punch to add to the sky which I think worked!

Soooo I do hope you'll pop over to the blog HERE to see what the other lovely Dressies have cume up with...  I promise you won't be disappointed and your shopping list will grow longer!

Here are the new images to take a peek at:
