Inchie and Card

Hello Everyone. Hope the weather is ok where you are and that you are not in a part of the UK that has floods. We have had lots of rain but nothing seems to be flooding so far.

Can't believe that it is Monday again already and time for another Inchie at Every Inchie Monday.


The theme for this week is 'Ballet' so I chose Swan Lake. Resized the swan image to fit the inchie then coloured the background to make it look like a lake.

I am still keeping up with Marina in the Christmas Card makes and using the wonderful 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenges as inspiration

The theme this week is 'dry and wet embossing' all on one card.

I used a Cuttlebug folder for the background of the card then stamped and embossed the tree image. The stamp is an old one by 'Anita's' and the gold embossing powder is Stamp-n-stuff, Gold Tinsel-opaque.

I added the sentiment which was on ribbon and the lace I coloured with a red Promarker.


Nice to have you pop in today and hope you enjoy whatever you are doing

Love Chrissie x

Your swan is gorgeous, so serene. Love the card too (cheers me up to see something Christmassy)- fabulous idea to colour the lace with Promarkers.

Love the little swan (and the fact that you can see the paddling beneath the surface!)... and the card works beautifully with the pop of dimension for the trees over those lovely swirls.
