Rhinestone berries




Maybe not my best photographic effort but it's not easy getting the angle right sometimes when you want to show all the details.

This is my entry for this weeks 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown . We had to use Rhinestone Embellishments, at least three....seventeen should qualify! The stamp is from Creative Expressions - Stylish Christmas 2 . I have used the separate swirl in the set to make a patterned background which doesn't really show up well here, sorry. I stamped and embossed with clear ink and clear powder to keep it subtle. The main image is embossed in gold. I then stamped and embossed another image from which I then cut out the leaves, candle and flame. The leaves are painted with Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints and all the berries have been covered with red rhinestones. The candle is curved gently over some silicone glue to give it dimension.

I'm enjoying playing along with this challenge, there are some beautiful cards being posted, lots of inspiration.
