Days of Winter… Tuesday, Dec 6 2016 

For todays card I’ve used up some of the leftover papers from my stash of Pion Christmas designs and  some wonderful Marianne designs dies to create this pretty Christmas card:

I didn’t have quite enough of the paper left to create the design I wanted so I’ve fussy cut the images from it and made the scene from the pieces, it worked out quite nicely in the end,so I’m happy with the final design

These papers are so soft and delicate and have such wonderful designs it would be a shame to waste even a little. As you can see this is a great way to use up all those scrap pieces you have been hoarding

Sweet Genevieve… Wednesday, Nov 30 2016 

Genevieve by Hannah Lynn would have to be one of my favourite images to colour. For todays card I’ve added some gorgeous dies, lace and trims to create a pretty Christmas card:

My image is printed onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E57, E55, E53, E51 clothes and wings: RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, RV0000 I added some Kindy Glitz to her gloves to give a sheer effect

For a closer look:

And another:

As you can see from my card today these images are quite versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions. I am a big fan of Non Traditional colours for Christmas cards but she could just as easily conform to the traditional red and green for another pretty creation
