You shall go to the Ball

We went to see Andre Rieu in Concert last week in Glasgow. At one piece of music he had a Ballroom as the backdrop, which reminded me of the film Cinderella and the carriages bringing them all to the ball. My friend had also sent me a picture of a Christmas Decoration and the 2 things combined together, my Inspiration was  now complete to start my project.

I used a Cheery Lynn doily die to cut out my main images and backed with beige paper, edged with distress and sprinkled with Glamour dust.

The front of the carriage I layered a piece of acetate behind. For the rear of the carriage I stamped an image and built up frame as shown in photo as wanted to give the effect of 3D and to be a Snow Globe in the centre.

I stamped a Christmas sentiment and layered on to the back and built my carriage up and added finishing touches from craft stash.

Other products used were - ribbons, pearls, acetate, bazzill paper, stemplegede christmas stamp, potting soil archival ink and scorpal tape.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and received some lovely new Craft Goodies. Julie x
