Another week and another project to share with you.  This morning I finished colouring my image but as I couldn't find the paper pad I had put to the side to use I used this Christmas pad of papers which were free with a magazine.

Everything went well and I soon got colouring finished.  Unfortunately, I just couldn't get any inspiration from the design papers I had chosen and I pulled apart my project two or three times before abandoning.

Later after a break and a bite to eat I returned to my craft area managing to juggle my way through a mine field of papers, die-cut and piles of things stacked high covering the whole table area ready for finishing tidying my Craft room.  It may now to tidy again - that is apart from the table top - although I have no idea where I've put things.  I had to use my Sizzix die cutter with a broken plate, couldn't find the embossing mat so had to manage without it - have no idea where I have put the plates for my Spellbinders die cutter!

Back to the topic in hand - I used one of Elisabeth Bell's gorgeous stamps called Winter Penelope, available here.

I used a silver sakura pen to accentuate the little girls fur edging and then added some Stickles glitter glue to add a wintery feel.


Medium:   Copics Markers, Silver Sakura pen, Stickles glitter glue
Papers:     Free papers, Gold cardstock

Dies used:  Marianne flourishes and flower dies, Magnolia Snowflake and border dies, Large Spellbinders die (coated with micro=beads), Die-namics swirl flowers

Clear gems, fabric brad, Various flowers

PS.  For all you Christmas lover's I've just put up my Christmas tree and decorations.  I have never before put them up as early as 1st December but as I didn't bother last year due to illness I'm making up for it now!

Best wishes,
