This card is a tad different because it's darker than my usual cards, but I do love the dramatic look of it. I've used Tilda With Hanging Heart from the new Merry Little Christmas collection from Magnolia Stamps. This is the first time she's been inked up. She was colored using Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush. I used some Stickles on her wings, although I apologize that it's not showing up so well in this picture. All papers used are from the BasicGrey Majorlaine 6x6 Paper Pad.
This is also one of the first times I've used my Viva Decor Pearl Pens! These pearl pens are an absolute must! I can't believe I haven't discovered them before. You can pretty much create an size of pearl you want. They look great and it's very easy to create rounded pearls. For this card, I've used the pearls to create an outline behind Tilda. The Pearl Pen colors I've used are the Light Blue, Silver, and Light Green. I've ordered a few other colors so you'll be seeing these a lot! 7 Kids College Fund has them in stock HERE at a very reasonable price if you wanted to try them out yourself :)
This is also my first time using the Elegant Flourishes die from Tim Holtz. I've been wanting this die for a while now, but I just didn't think I could do it justice. I tried to do that for this card, but I think there are so many more possibilities for these flourishes. Also a brand new addition to my die collection is the Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles. I layered it on top of the Nestabilities Large Classic Scalloped Circles.
Hope you're able to play with some new goodies for Christmas!
