It's not quite Winter yet - or if it is no one has told some of the summer plants in the garden - I still have fuchsias and alstromerias in flower and this morning 3 cone flowers have appeared! Although the temperatures are dropping it is still relatively mild for November- even my Christmas Roses have decided to poke their heads out.
I bought this Inkylicious Ornate Leaf stencil when it first came out and to my shame this make was the first time it's been used - but I made 3 more similar with it so I didn't feel quite as guilty.
A quick card really with some ink blending, stamping and glitter.
Used Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch oxides inside and Iced Spruce for the shading and Versafine Clair Twilight for the figures and trees. The dark blue made a change from the usual black I use for silhouettes/
I think I may need a little more practice with the shading at the outer edges - I was bothered about putting on too much and making it really dark!
The stamps are all from Cardio.

In a moment of madness I agreed to take a table at the local Community Centre for their Christmas Artisan Fair so have spent some time stamping on candles (a first for me and dead chuffed with myself!), and making Fairy baubles as well as cards. Am working on the basis that if all leftovers will simply end up being used by me!
Hence why my blogging is sporadic at the mo but now am a bit better organised I can sit and visit everyone!
Thanks for looking today - hope all is well in your part of blogland. x
Gorgeous card love the stamped sparkly image inside the stencil.Good luck with the Christmas Fair
This is absolutely gorgeous Viv and I love the added trees and little figures enjoying the snow..some pretty glitter to highlight it too, and the leaf shape has been ink blended beautifully with those two lovely DI's. I hope you do well at the Christmas Fair with all you wonderful creations. x

Wow - this is simply wonderful Viv. Such a pretty scene inside the maple leaf die. Beautiful Christmas card xxx
Beautiful card and the Twilight ink is just right for the figures against the stamped silhouettes. Good luck with your stall at the Fair

WOW! This is awesome, Viv! Love the shades of blue and the sweet scene captured in the leaf! Good luck with your sale!
AMAZING card Viv! I LOVE your beautiful winter scene. The shades of blue look so cold and icy ... perfect for your lovely scene. So cool using the leaf as your card panel. It's really beautiful and gives me the feeling of peace and calm. LOVE IT! xx

This scene is great and the edges are beautiful for your snowy look. The leaf has such perfect dimension it looks raised against the cardstock. It sounds like your booth will be a hit with the things you are making. Can't wait to see pictures.
This is such a beautiful Christmas card, Viv, the leaf outline is gorgeous! Thanks for joining in at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge.

This looks fabulous, and the blending around the edges really makes it pop off the card. Love the little scene inside. I don't get much time for visiting these days, but so glad I saw this.
