The card is made from brown card. The top layer was stamped with a couple of darkroom Door stamps using sepia ink. Used distress inks in pinks to colour the card then edged with vintage Photo. The underneath layer is pink stamped with a word stamp from the same set in sepia, as is the sentiment, but this was stamped with a Gina K Best Wishes sentiment.
The roses are made from cream paper and spritzed with glimmer mist.
Finished off with the cream ribbon and a bow.
This frame was made for Mum. I had a wooden frame from IKEA that I painted black then did a crackled effect using PVA glue and a creamy coloured paint.
The flowers were made from pale pink paper then spritzed with a pale pink glimmer mist. The leaves were cut with a Cheery Lynn die from pale green paper, then spritzed with green, which also made the curl a little.
The frame was just the right size for the photo of the great grandchildren in Australia!
I saw this idea for a tealight candle holder in a magazine recently and thought I would try it out. I had some memory glass that I stamped with embossing ink using a crackle stamp from Tanda Stamps, then embossed with gold and heat set.
I used copper tape to edge the top of the glass sides then used the tape to fix the sides together in a square. I glued the sides to the bottom, then covered with the copper tape.
It looks very effective with a tealight candle in it! I have entered this in Crafty Hazelnut's C hristcmas Challenge. - Whatever lights your candle!
