Peace on Earth with Lydia Evans

Hi there! Today I have my last post as Talent In Residence here on the Winnie & Walter blog. I'm sad that this will be my last post but I'm also so happy and honoured to have been with you for the last four months. Julie and Shay are absolutely amazing and I'm so thankful to them for having me on the team :) This month's Re-Run set is 'Happy Christmas' so I decided to use this as my inspiration .....


This set has some awesome images in it, and I'm still in love with the wreath image! I started by stamping this in a dark green ink into place and then stamped it again repeatedly all over the rest of my card layer in a little grey ink. I then added some berries using the little dots from the same set in a dark red ink and added some colour to the stamped green wreath's leaves using a green coloured pencil. I stamped the sentiment from 'Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs' into the coloured wreath and heat embossed it to draw more attention.


For the cut little bow I cut three of the little bows from 'Essentials: Noelle Cutaways' and layered them up as seen in the video.

I really hope you like my card and enjoyed the video! Thanks again Julie and Shay for having me it has been an honour and privilege. 

Hugs, Lydia xxx
