Victoria and Friends

I’ve a rather untraditional Christmas card today, quite shocked myself with this one lol.  The stamp is from the new Lili of the Valley release, wow I am loving this release so much!  The stamp is Victoria and Friends, so sweet.  The adorable sentiment is from Lili of the Valley’s Grunge Christmas Postmarks.

Coloured with distress inks and markers, I am really enjoying playing with them (especially as I can take them to work and sit and colour at lunch times – can’t do that with a full set of copics Winking smile )

Erm, I got a bit carried away with the stickles!!

The papers are Nitwit Collections, Cotton Candy Kisses – not a Christmas kit but it works for me, these digi kits are so versatile.  Printed on 160gsm paper (whatever is on offer at Staples when I stock up lol) using a very antiquated HP printer (at least 10 years old and still going), on normal setting using compatible inks from Internet Ink (no affiliation – just love their product, service and fast despatch).  I’ve popped this here as I get asked this question over and over. Smile

All the embellies are from Wild Orchid Crafts (except for the daisies and snowflake brad):

Trellis rose, cottage roses, hip rose buds, aster daisies lace, seam binding, stamens.

That’s it from me today, I should have another paper give-away ready to blog tomorrow.

  64. Bev,

    Such a sweet card. There's no such thing as too many stickles, is there?
    Love them!

  66. Your corner flower spray is stunning, Bev! From here it looks light green and pick but maybe it is light cream? No matter, it is perfectly dainty and feminine. The rose hips are so petite! One of these days I will get bold enough to print paper--haven't done it yet. I'm wondering how true to color it is? Maybe I ought just to try it, huh? And, how can anyone refrain from using too many stickles--they are so FUN and vibrant!
