WoJ: card & a candy winner

Hello, sorry for the lack of posts this weekend - this card just seemed to take forever to come together & I don't like to start a new card until I've finished the one I'm working on! So what with that, me working weekends and then an hour long powercut in the early hours yesterday/today (even though most people would have been asleep that's when I craft/tinker on the pc being the night owl that I am) I've only just finished it.

so anyway, here it is. Wanted to try a collagy/distressed look with handsome little Oakley from the Winter kit.
I've stamped a WoJ xmas tree to one side and him to the front then masked him and added music sheet behind him (an Magnolia 'silent night' stamp from last year). Then it's all been sponged with distress inks and all the edges have been set upon with my distresser. It's been spritzed with glimmer mist but it doesn't show at all in the photo and the little bauble has diamond glaze and glamour dust over it. After all that, I'm not quite sure I like it but it's done now!

  • Stamps: Oakley & tree - WoJ. Music & the merry christmas seal- Magnolia
  • Colouring: Images coloured with Copics, background sponged with distress inks
  • Paper: MME 'signiture Christmas'
  • Tools:Heidi swapp distresser, mini holly punch
  • Others: ribbon, red half backed pearls, white bellas baubles, white gel pen for faux stitching


  • Right, now for the real reason you popped over. . .

    The winner of my mini WoJ candy - sorry for the delay! isn't working tonight so I've had to randomly pick a winner (very technical - I closed my eyes and scrolled up & down then clicked on a name :D)

    So without further ado, the winner of this little lot is . . . Chrissie

    Congrats! Please email me your snail mail and it's yours!

    That's all for now. Have a lovely evening.
