LOC Collage Door Gems

It has been a couple of days since I have posted as things have been busy here with my oldest two finishing Year 10 - last night it was their Formal Dinner - it has been hectic but so worth it!

It is Saturday here and we are heading off to finish our Christmas Shopping today and have Christmas Carols at the Local Primary School tonight - it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....everywhere I go...LOL!

I have a very quick project to show you today, a Door Gem I created as a little gift for the 'LOC Ladies' who are such wonderful ladies and have made my Workshops so much fun.

I have used Layers of Color Beautiful Lace clear art stamp set, illustrated by Nina Brackett - this is such a gorgeous set and one I love to use

The white lace has been embossed, using Tsukineko Versamark and White Embossing Powder - it looks amazing IRL

I added a gorgeous Crystal Magnet as a gift, just a little something that comes with a lot of love and appreciation - I love these gals!

The Door Gems themselves have been created using Laura Kirste Campbell's wonderful Splash Paper Technique - such a great effect.

This project is for the following challenges:
Art Impressions Stamps Challenge -  Try Something new
Charisma Cardz - No Cards
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
 Just For Fun - non-cute - Spring
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts – Anything but Christmas
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
