Christening Card......

Hello,

I hope all of you gorgeous people are well and have had a great weekend!

I am so happy that it is the last day of January. I know I am bad wishing my life away but I so want longer daylight and warmer climes! Roll on Spring!


Today I would like to show you a card I made for the sweetest little baby girl's Christening of a gorgeous blogging friend of mine.

I have stamped baby Tilda with Versafine onyx black onto 300gsm (140lbs) water colour paper. I have coloured my image with distress ink pads.


I wanted to make an easel card but, they are a nightmare for me to photograph lol!

The stickles I have added are star dust and platinum. The die shapes are nesties which I have layered. 

The lace and large flat flowers were a gift from my scrumptious friend Tab.


I have distressed everything with walnut stain. I have also used Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on bits of my card. The corner and crown shapes are glimmer mist chips.


The hearts and tiny flowers are Quickutz dies. The border die is a Magnolia Doohickey. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.


The wording are Time Holtz grunge board letters and I have covered these with tattered rose distressed paint.


Thank you so very much for visiting with me!

I wish you all a great week to come!

love
