My first card showcases one of the new individual cling mounted stamps called Rejoice!. I prepared the background by blending several colours of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and masking off sections to create the mountains. For the sky I used: Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon and a touch of Aged Mahogany around the edges. The mountain in the foreground: Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans. The moon: Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade.
Here's a closer look at her the rising angel. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with Graph'It alcohol markers. The wings are heat embossed on vellum using WOW Bright White EP. I fussy cut and adhered both onto the inked background, leaving most of the wings free so she looks like she's flying.

My second card is an easy number. I started by making the background by blending Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and a touch of Shaded Lilac for the sky. Then I stamped the deer, trees and snowflakes from the Sparkling Trees A5 sheet and created a scene. The sentiment is from the Snowy Penguins clear set, stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue.
I stamped the deer with VersaFine Vintage Sepia; the trees: VersaFine Deep Lagoon; and the snowflakes:VersaMagic Sea Breeze. Next I coloured the images with Caran d'Ache Supracolor Soft water colour pencils and finished the project with Stardust Stickles and Silver Liquid Pearls.
Admittedly, the dimensions are a little off on this card but hey, after a
