DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY NEW RELEASES :: 'VICTORIA'



Another week has rolled by, and why does it feel that this past week has flown by faster than any other?  I’m sure it was Monday when I went to bed last night…. Or that’s how it felt. Does anyone else feel like that?
 
One good thing about the faster pace is that you get to see the new releases at Digistamps 4 Joy faster too.
This is a card I made with one of the new releases, one of my own drawings for the store, called VICTORIA


  I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen:

 Although she was not designed to be a Christmas image, I thought that as her face was particularly angelic, I would add a pearl hand beaded halo and added some sequin stars to it, to make a Christmas card.

(I love the way the camera flash has caught the light in the sequin stars)

The other items from my stash to make this card were:

white CS card base
hearts and stars DP
turquoise satin ribbon and bow
sewn on star sequins and beads
