Hello everyone, today I am sharing one of my creations with the stunning Christmas papers,
starring my beautiful Ella Jai .


I used a base of Bazzill brown cardstock , stamped with black ink using a Prima stamp .
Next I Added to the background by randomly placing the Crafters workshop mask on the page, and inking with Grape Versa color.
This paper offers such rich velvety colors  which  match perfectly with the deep velvet antique flowers. 
I mounted the photo in layers with the Christmas  papers and  I clustered the rich velvet flowers, die cut leaves and the stunning organza flower around my photo .
The keys are altered with Gesso and ink and stitched to the page .
I distressed  the papers by rubbing lightly with an emery board .
These papers take on a different feel and look with a light distressing , it brings out the design  and amplifies the border punch pattern .

a beautiful white Tulle GREEN TARA  bloom 
 Denise has designed these beautiful papers with such  amazing diversity .
The leaves are all from the one design and yet they look so individual in a cluster , all blending together .
All the different tones and hues add to the magic .
