Mistletoe and Roses

Hello Nomad friends.  Another warm day here in Norway so I decided to chill and go all Christmas and bling.  The challenge at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity for the rest of this month is Face On.  Use a human face on your stamped makes.  I decided to use Lost Coast Designs gorgeous Mistletoe Goth, with supporting action from Sketchy Rose and Peace Dictionary Words.  

I kinda cased my own design that I used Mistletoe Goth for last month, keeping her slightly off the right hand side, but I got a bit more arty on the left hand side, masking and stamping the Peace dictionary words and, with the help of a bit more masking, stamping and embossing the Sketchy Rose with white tinsel embossing powder.  I used Promarkers on the main image and lots of blingy iridescent glitter glue.  

Do hop over to the Portal for all the details, more photos, lots of inspiration from the team and to link up your Face On stamped makes for your chance to win Lost Coast dollars$$$$!!  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  7. Well, well....both of us with an early entry into Jo's challenge (sorry it took me awhile to get over here!). The earth's magnetic field must have shifted or something!!! Ha.

    Beautiful image, Gail. She looks great with just the pops of color. I love her teamed up with the dictionary text and embossed floral background. Great composition and sparkle!!!
