Victorian Carolers for CVC

Good morning everyone

My post is a little late this morning because I forgot to schedule this with the shop post duh!!!!!
P1150084a
Anyhow just a sneak peek for my card which is on full view with instructions at the Country View Crafts Updates blog.

Hope you have time to take a look.

Have a great Friday and a happy weekend with hopefully some crafty time for you.

Updated with full instructions -

I just love the silhouette shapes of the Victorian Carolers and have used the Tim Holtz die with distress stains and remnant rubs for my card today
Starting with the rub-ons I rubbed some over my background card leaving a space where the silhouettes were going to be placed.
I dispensed the colours of stains I wanted to use onto my craft mat and followed the wrinkle free distress technique by Tim Holtz.
When dry I added the silhouettes and used a white drawing pencil to go round the edges and make the silhouettes 'pop' more from the background.
However the silhouettes looked rather stark so I cut another set and stamped them with a Tim Holtz Christmas script (use could use any text or music score if you haven't got this one)  .....
..... and adhered them using foam pads to create some depth and dimension.
Three stars cut in chipboard from the Crescent Moon and Stars die were covered with Stickles glitter and I made the poinsettia using crinoline fabric. I was rather please with the quite colourful outcome.
