December giveaway time.......
is here at last. It's been a busy week for me as it was my birthday and I had arranged plenty of days out and dinners (managing not to cook for a week lol) so I am now extremely fat and exhausted. A lovely end to the week was a visit to the Christmas Fair in Lincoln (beautiful cathedral) a long but enjoyable day with some girlfriends.
I was also overwhelmed by the gorgeous cards and artwork I received from my amazing internet buddies, I will try and post some photos so you can all share but you know who you are and I thank you all very very much!! The talent, kindness and generosity of my fellow crafters never ceases to amaze me.
Now, for the giveaway.....
This wasn't at all what I intended to do, but you may remember that a couple of weeks ago I joined in a fabric image transfer swap on Artful Ideas. This one came out very well, but she called to me to do something more than just an ATC, and she also seemed perfect to fit in a gothic arch - so here it is. Maybe not a very jolly item for a Christmas giveaway but I think she looks very peaceful and she is holding a cross so there is a tenuous seasonal connection!
For the outside of the arch I tried out Carol's 'faux metal' technique which she described on her blog recently. I was working with quite a limited surface area and didn't use quite the same materials but like the effect created. Thanks Carol!
The image itself has been padded and the little dangly bits are made from airdried clay covered in paint and embossing powders.
As it is Christmas, the lucky winner will also get a little goody bag and in order to try and get it in the post before Christmas (I am very bad at getting to the Post Office) the draw for this will be Monday 14th December at 8.00 pm. Bit late for an overseas winner I know but please don't let that put you off. You know the drill, leave a comment on this post to take part.
