Lucia 2012


Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely weekend. A card to share today with the gorgeous new special Lucia stamp, she's really sweet and just how I imagine Lucia would be. I've painted her with distress ink markers amd watercolour markers and painted in my own Christmas tree background.  


I used up a scrap of patterned paper for the background layer and DooHickey die cut flourish so I can't remeber the brand and I decorated with lots of stardust stickles, Magnolia gold berries, paper roses, lace, a wooden snowflake, pearl pen pearls, faux stitching and the peg letter stamps stamped sentiment 'rejoice'.

I'm entering my card into the challenge at Tilda's Town which is 'Anything Goes', Marvelous Magnolia's has a theme of 'Non-traditional colours - Christmas theme' and I'm hoping my mainly navy and cream colours will fit that. The challenge at Cute Card Thursday is 'girls only' so I'm entering that too.
