This week we are welcoming the lovely Claudia aka Von Pappe 11  into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

I made a New Year Card using a Darkroom Door Alphabet Medley Stamp Set


For the background I tore some Peackock and Watercolor Paper and coloured with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. I then used an acetate Brutus Monroe Winter Wonder Foil Toner Sheet and Heidi Swapp Teal and Silver Ombre Foil to create the overlay, so pretty IRL ;-)

The strip of striped paper was originally black and white, I coloured with a BG49 Copic Marker


and I used a leftover scrap of paper to decorate the envelope 




Thanks for looking :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn!

Everything about this is gorgeous!

Chana Malkah said...

This is so very pretty! It has a certain sophistication of design that I think comes from the palette and your awesome composition. Very nicely crafted and we are so happy that you chose to share your project with us at A Place To Start!

Such an amazing card! The design is fabulous with the pretty snowflakes and colours, and I love the way you ripped the edge of the paper for the little deer to peep out 😁. Wishing you a happy and creative New Year! Hugs, Jo x
