It's Almost A New Year!

Hello friends!
Tonight we ring in a new year! Yeah!
I think a perfect way to start the new years is to share with you all
my favorite vintage new years card!



I printed this card on cardstock and created this sweet wall hanging around it!



A piece of black chipboard is my background,
 which I then started adding layers upon.





A fun way to add more fun and whimsy to a piece, especially when working with dark colors, is to take a white gel pen and out line everything with little lines to make it look like faux stitches!
This Signo White gel pen is the best gel pen I have ever used! It always writes nice and smooth! I definitely recommend getting the Signo brand!



This wall hanging is now in the etsy shop!

We wish you all a wonderful New Year's Eve!

Lindsey and Twyla
