I'm continuing to play with my Leanne Ellis Sugar Nellie stamps, here's a card using a soft, wintry palette. This card is following a very pretty sketch from Just Christmas & Birthday Cards, by Janina.
The image is coloured with H20s and Art Quest watercolours and matted onto a Glimmer Misted scrap. The sentiment is the middle of a large circular stamp. It was stamped onto the same watercolour paper as the image but it looked a little stark, so I used chalk ink over the stamping which I like better.
The background paper is My Mind's Eye, from the Stamp Attic and the little iridescent gems are by Papermania. The yarn is a space dyed wool that I bought when I was into braiding, it is tied in the middle with beading wire that has a butterfly bead and a couple of seed beads on each end. I was going to leave the wire loose but I thought it was a little sharp and I threaded it through so it is secured between the paper and the card, in the interests of Elf and Safety :)
