Forgotten Friday 46- Add a bit of bling!

Hi folks, it's Friday and time to rummage through your stash again, to see what you have lurking unused and neglected in your crafty supplies.

I've only just made it today, as we've had a busy day, and I'm not feeling 100% either, so please forgive the late post.

This week I have chosen to use a Christmas stamp from Crafty Individuals, that I hadn't used before. I have used Antique Linen and Weathered Wood Distress inks throughout, with just a touch of pencils for the little angel. I have added the CI crackle stamp to the background as well, I love that stamp.

I broke open my ironworks Nesties too, as yet unused, and added some flat-backed gems. I have tons of these, because I don't generally use them. However Christmas cards are the perfect excuse.

I really like this gentle colour combo, and think that I will have to use it again.

Don't forget, if any of you make something, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Don't feel that you have to follow my lead, and add bling, or even make a Christmas card. Just do your own thing if you would like to. My pile of Christmas cards is starting to mount up though, and it's only January! Thanks for stopping by, xx

agree that colour combo is lovely very subtle but suits the main stamped image well.

Lovely delicate colouring for this card and another one for your seasonal pile. Sorry I seem to have missed FF for last week (not sure where the week went) - will try harder this week. I do hope you are soon feeling 100%

Lovely soft colours Judith, I must bear that colour combo in mind too. The ironworks look lovely. I have been pondering whether I need them, I think I definitely do! Lovely little touch of bling too. Well done getting ahead with the Christmas cards. Elaine xxx

I do hope you start to feel better soon. I do love this soft colour paletter & the the way those gemstone swirld hept accent the curvature of the C in the sentiment. Plus they remind me of the musical clefs & so tie in beatifully with the stamped image.
