Festive Ideas over at All Dressed Up November Challenge!

 For the Challenge over at All Dressed Up Stamps this month, I was able to use the beautiful image, "Angel Wings".  I love how feminine, soft and "Angelic!" she is-was a dream to color.

I used a piece of light yellow Mulberry paper - ya'll remember using that back in the day?- placed over a medium tone of blue paper.  This was so you could see the swirls of the fibers-made me think that the breezes in Heaven would be like these...I elevated her using dimensional dots for some depth.  I used Liquid Pearls, Nova Dots, and Stickles for her Crown and Blue Epoxy Dots for accents. For the inside, another sentiment on pine cone paper which I colored random cones and pine needles for interest. 
We would love to see everyone join in our monthly Challenge and inspire us with your projects!  These are individually voted on, not a random draw, and you could win some images for your creating!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks, Carolyn

New Release of Christmas Images at All Dressed Up Stamps


This is the New Release for November from All Dressed Up Stamps-I'm using the image 
It's perfect for the Holidays!  
Thought I'd try and use one of my pre-scored Slimline Blanks so that I could use a new
Stamp with the "designed" trees as a background!  It worked perfectly- I just colored different shades of green with my copics.  I reduced the size of this cutie stamp so that it would fit but, as the 
images from ADU are digital that was an easy process.
I used dimensional dots to elevate the image for a shadow effect.  The Ho Ho Ho sentiment was also part of the clear acrylic stamp so Bonus!  A little bit of Posca white ink splattered on the card was a great snowy effect. The inside of the card was finished with a beautiful woodgrain effect paper and stamped with a perfect sentiment.
