"Happy New Year cards"
Both cards use decoupaged images from the Graphics Fairy, background mats punched with my favourite Martha Stewart Wild Flowers PATP and lace.
"Old Father Time"
The background card & image edges are distressed with Tumbled Glass & Faded Jeans. The image is matted onto a punched border using card cut from a Marks and Spencer cake box, then a larger border from holographic card decorated with pale blue pearls and gems.
This image reminded me so much of Tim Burton's work, I just had to go for the grunge and distress with Black Soot. Some water splashes and Rock Candy distress stickles were used to splodge and highlight the image, and pearls decorate the punched background. It's just how I feel on New Year's Eve, kind of soggy round the edges with a bit of sparkle.
Happy New Year!
