Christmas cheer

I made these few things as a Wishing Well wish on a forum I post on, the notebook cover has been embossed on the cuttlebug on C'oredinations cardstock which I sanded & then inked with my distress ink (Vintage Photo) to give the crocodile skin effect (I got the handbag shape idea from someone on a Yahoo group I am a member of). Both it & the christmas album have been bound on my BIA, the christmas album has been painted with polished pigments in that beautiful green colour & finished with Maya Road felt flowers.

The christmas baubles were also made using polished pigments, Myléne (from Mill Lane Studio) did a class on these last christmas which sadly I missed, but I did get told about it, so being the inquisitive & ingenious person I am, I checked out google & found some instructions on doing it, & here they are.

The card is white cardstock embossed on the cuttlebug & then coloured with Twinkling H2Os & PearlEx for the background & highlighted with a Krylon Gold leafing pen & bling.

I do hope the recipient likes them & they make her christmas a little brighter :) .
