My computer doesn't like the link to the full reveal Astrid, but can see enough to see there is Ivy which I always love using on work and that's a really gorgeous sentiment font.

Your sneak peek looks very intriguing ... What a beautiful card you created! I love the deep blue colour palette and seeing the faded layers technique 😁. The embellishments and Stampendous Vintage Silver embossing powder look so pretty too - perfect! Wishing you a lovely week! J 😊

Astrid, I've just been over to see this beauty, and left you some love there. But I had to come by to tell you you have nailed this technique and made it in your very own wonderful style that I adore! I love that bit of embossing on the edges...looks perfectly vintage! Where does one get that fabulous copper kraft core; I've never seen it before!? That's moving to the top of my wish list! Hugs!

Beautiful Astrid! Your blue tones alcohol ink background is so amazing, like a windy winter day with flurries! Your trailing vine is wonderful, and that sweet angel in her winter coat is such a great image! LOVE the gilded edges! A fabulous design for a holiday card! hugs :)

Well, at some point when there's some time I'm clearly going to have to give these Faded Layers a go... even though each of you has said you've struggled, the effect is really cool.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
