Besides, I'm gearing up behind the scenes, for my first gig as a newly fledged WMS DT member and this is such a nice warm-up. Tee hee!
First up, I used Dainty Doilies 2 set, to go with the theme. I stamped them on SU! Sahara Sand, with either Pumice Stone Distress Ink or with Versamark and white embossed.
Added to the background, were the pine branches and berries from Festive Foliage.
The antique lamp and leaves from Bright Season, was stamped in HA Soft Granite Shadow Ink and ColorBox Ice Jade, and shaded with Copics. I used various Memento inks for the rest.
The sentiment comes from A Cottage Christmas, and was stamped on the Ribbon Banner Shapeabilities die cut.
I distressed the edges and inked them white. The burlap DP underneath belongs to the Glitz Design French Kiss paper pad.
The embellishments include lace, pearls and a Prima bloom/leaves.
