Blue Christmas

Hi there, I've been working on a couple of cards over the weekend , thought I would share them with you, I've really taken to a bit of mixed media again at the moment, 
I painted my card with deep blue acrylic, once dry i used some crackle paste and dusted it with some distress ink. I then distressed the edges with my scissors. The topper is a stamp from years ago I bought it from The Stamp Man. Embossed with versamark and silver detail powder I then coloured it with Brusho's, once dry i filled the poinsettia flower with 3D Laquer, the stars are Tando's Creative that I gessoed and covered with glitter, ribbon from my stash and the Peace die is a Tim Holtz.

I'm really enjoying myself at the moment, my next card is still drying so i may pop it on tomorrow, 
I'm entering this in the following;

my time to craft Christmas in July
a vintage journey  All squared up

really reasonable ribbon Anything with ribbon

Hugs Debra
