Fairies or angels at Christmas card club

Hello there ...How are you? I do hope you are wrapped up and managing to keep warm. Its been very chilly hasn't it? Park run here was even cancelled today due to icy surfaces. Still, I managed to get some lengths in at the pool instead!

I am posting a day earlier for Christmas Card Club as I have another post scheduled for tomorrow. The theme this fortnight is angels or fairies - I have gone for the fairy option and my mum has done one of each!

Here are mine - I made backgrounds using oxides and pixie powders on the gelli plate then finished off with more distress inks, masking and stamping.

Here's a close up! I also added some glitter on the wings and some posca pen on the berries.

Here are the ones my mum did ....

Firstly one using distress oxides and lavinia stamps ....

and this one used a diesire die...

I do hope you like our makes!

Big hugs!

Rachel xx
