Icy Fragment (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card made using one of the gorgeous images from Gothic Angels on a background made using one of the fab new stamps, Nature Fragments

I've used glossy card for the background and randomly applied tumbled glass, broken chine and a little shaded lilac distress inks and then overstamped with the icy fragment using the same colours. I've edged the background with tea dye distress ink and matted it on some kraft card. The main image was stamped on kraft card and embossed with sparkly white embossing powder. I stamped the image again on smooth white card and coloured with Graph'It Markers.

 Next I cut the image out and layered it up on the kraft card. I layered the image up over some cheesecloth, coloured with distress inks and added a little bow and some die cut snowflakes topped with little pearls.

Thanks for visiting today, keep popping back as my teamies have got some gorgeous samples to share using these lovely new stamps

  1. Hello Claire
    I had to comment on your work...this is beautiful !
    Love all the details too!
    Love Marg

  2. I love the Gothic Angel. The really detailed colouring, the lovely soft colours in the background and the unusual use of the cheesecloth, combined with these stamps and some great ideas, make such different Christmas cards.

  3. This is beautiful Claire, I've had to 'Pin' it so I can find it again later :)

  4. So different and such a beautiful background!

  5. The warn rich colours of your angel have a distinctly frosty look with the way you layered her so as to allow the white nimbus to catch the eye. Your Tea Dye edging of the background plus matting onto kraft contrasts beautifully with the lilac/aqua tones & the cheesecloth in similar hues gives an almost ethereal sense when combined with the angel - you can almost imagine the fragility of her clothing with ice & snow crystals encrusting it.
    You certainly sparked my imagination with this one.
