christmas card swap

My picture Did not turn out that great but here it is.

As you can see i used a Magnolia Image.I love this one and it is a 2005 image.I have had it for LONG time.

So i stamped it out on Fabriano watercolour paper from Bear Creek Studios in Bayside Mall.It is 140 Lb paper.I love it.

I used my watercolour Lyra pencil crayons and oudourless mineral spirit and coloured the image,once done i placed it to the side and layed down my pattern papers.I chose Imaginice s christmas line. I used my new border punch that i got from Kim Reid and scalloped my green bazill cardstock.I edge distressed the matted picture and used 3d glue dot`s and then cut out with my cuttlebug the snowflake die,,,3d`d that and added a red button to the center of it.

Once all matted and glued down then came my favourite part the embellishing.I used glossy accents for the ornament and then added some stickles and of course the dew drops.

I hope the ladies at the card swap enjoy the card.

Chrysanthimum Fairy

This is called the chrysanthimum fairy .....i love her and plan to use her alot in the future

I used copic markers to colour and shade her

Istamped her twice cutting out the wings and top part of the mum and layered/3d them on then
I added my embellishments.

I used robins nest dew drops ,metal embellishments and adhered them on with the glossy accents which i also used on the wings.
I used my sizzlit flourish to cut some out.I also added some of the flower beads that i kindly asked my daughter for but you can purchase them at wal-mart.

The paper is called enchanting by Fancy Pants.
The rest is bazill cardstock.

Other items I used are Crystal Stickles, And an Edge distresor.

Now more about the image----It is a Sophia Landry Original.Sophia does beautiful work and I love this image.This line is the first of many of the Humble Pie Images .

Hope you enjoy her work as much as I do.
Have A Great Day & Fantastic ThanksGiving
