Christmas Lights


Hi again.
I stamped a few images using a friend's stamp when I was up at my sister's a while ago. Not sure what brand it is, and I finally got around to fussy cutting and colouring the images. Thanks again Amanda :)

I used my gelly roll sparkle pens, then covered them with a layer of glossy accents. Here's a better pic of the glassy look.


I'm going to link up with the challenge at CASology, where the cue card is black.

At Less is More, there's a photo for inspiration and the theme is to use a dark background with a splash of colour.




Materials used: borrowed stamp; Versafine & clear ep; sparkle gelly pens; glossy accents; Stately embossing folder; silver cord, brads and sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
