Dreamees Christmas Reindeer!

Its my turn to share my 1st make using Dreamees​ new release on Create & Craft ​ this Saturday at 10am with Carol​ and Hayley Bignall​ I have used one of the gorgeous MDF shapes for this project and painted it with white gesso, I have then used the fab "Joy" stamp along with the snowflake stamps that are part of the show too. I have embossed them with 3 different silver embossing powders and added a little silver gilding wax to the edges, it looks even better in real life so don't forget to tune in!

Spectrum Noir Challege - Emboss it!

For my birthday my Mum gave me the Groovi Board and as soon as got it I just new that  I was going to use it for this months new Spectrum Noir Challenge as its all about Embossing - you can do anything as long as it has embossing on the card! Simple and it doesn't get any more simple that this gorgerous card. I have used the embossing board and then coloured on the front of the vellum - I love the classy look it gives and how the flowers pop with my Spectrum Noir Pencils - 29 and 36 only!

Isn't it beautiful! So are you going to join in the fun over on the Spectrum Noir Face Book Page HERE?

I hope to see your amazing creations soon.

The paper and flower and gem came from Craft Artist's Bohemian Golden Peacock, doesn't it work perfecly! I have also added some embossing powder and gilding flakes and not forgetting some sequins. The Feathers I have die cut with a Hot of the Press die and inked them and added a little gilding wax too.
