Altered Book Nutcracker Suite

Hi romantic fan's,
the time was right for a new christmas gift, she is also a great ballet fan as I and admired my altered book from last year. Perhaps so I think, it's a good idea to make a little surprise in addition to the tickets, which she becomes from her friend.

Mix from various beautiful stamps and scrapbookpaper - La Blanche + Graphic 45
icecicle, branches, snowflakes dies, embossing folder Sizzix (music notes)
punches, Distress inks vintage, peacock feathers, walnut stain, black soot

the stamp motives were painted with distress inks

Clara and her best friend the nutcracker

 motif was cut from a scrapbook paper (Graphic 45)
 little rock ballet originated from a punched snowflake

I want to entering my altered book into the following Challenges:

Live & Love Craft's inspiration With Love
Ballet theme: Clara and the nutcracker
Nutcracker suite, embossed music notes background
 love the altered art style and the Tim Holtz (Ranger) beautiful distress inks are ideally suited to this, I don't know any better

 Thanks for stoppy by today and having a peek at my blog! 

 I hope you all have a wonderful christmas time!
LG Kerstin
