Painted Princess

Just in the mood to make up an anytime card. I loved the idea of colouring her hair Blue!!! and the paint looks
she's dripping the colour on to the flower I've hand sewn the little butterfly on to the ribbon. The Flower is many layers of individual Paper Flowers then sprayed with a antique wash to darken them all up.

Well here's some things I've been in the middle of working on one is for my DT I'm on and the other is me trying to use up my stash of images I've already coloured if I keep them to long I'll just recycle them seeing I colour way more then I use and yes I'm still making Xmas cards even though I'm guessing these are for next year :). Only one pair of scissors out and that light bulb you see on the right is a pen and yes if you hit it, it will flash LOVE IT!!. I do store my ribbons by colour all removed from the rolls unless they are super thin and really long to re-roll,My mission is to use up my stash and not to buy try to not buy new stash till this is at least at the half way mark which I don't really think is realistic but I'm trying. I've been pre-warned my sister she mailed me some new stash that she's been de-stashing and collecting all year so. Who knows what will happen when Christmas arrives.  So take a peek at everyone Else's desk at Julia's and HAPPY WOYWW.
oh and i still have to do my hand deliveries too.

Happy Holidays

Here's one of my last Few Cards for this year I'll start Next years on the 26th already started lol so I've decided no sentiment on the front and made a cute scene instead
but who wouldn't love a little Christmas fairy to show up and bring you Christmas joy
You'll notice that the door is missing it's big bow it normally has this was the 1st Image I created with it and the holly was actually was being held by the fairy but she lost that hand in the fussy cutting stage.

So this week at Incy Wincy lets see your snowflakes. I've used Snowflake paper then handstamped a BG base paper on the card with lots of snowflakes.

Brown Christmas

Non traditional Christmas cards I actually love making different colours then the normal reds and greens I love black on them too and this was just such a fun image from Saturated Canary to colour up and I've created a wood floor for her to stand on and coloured the walls beige to. I'm also not one for glitter but my sister mailed me a whole bunch of them and shhh don't tell her but this was just perfect for that little extra touch :)

Something for my door

Seeing I already own a pretty wreathe I decided to make an old fashion tissue paper one like we did in school when I was young. This one is really full of tissue paper too think it was about 14 sheets to get it to look like this and it was just put on a piece of cardboard that I cut using my larges plate and then found the middle with a lid and cut it out
The Beautiful Ribbon is from May Arts (Canvas One LOVE THIS) and the thin one is Mara-mi
Red and White Stripe. Just make sure you have time to make one of these I think it comes in close to 3-4 hours !!
