Happy Christmas

Morning to you all,

I am just popping by to share a Christmas card that I managed to make at the weekend.  It has been a while since I managed to get to make cards.

This one is made using an image from Penny Black and I think it is so cute...reminds me of a certain Christmas advert that is on the T.V at the moment :)

This is for the December challenge at Spectrum Noir which is an easy one this time for me Clean and Simple :)

I have coloured it with Aquatints - landscape, perfectly primary and bright and beautiful collections
The dies are Doo Hickey
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat

Hope you have a good day and that the weather isn't too bad where you are.

My Favourite........Clean and Simple

Morning to you all,

Hope you are all doing ok.  
I have been away for the last few days looking after my Mum after she had an operation on her eye last Friday.  It was quite a stressful few days seeing her so uncomfortable and the after care was not pleasant for her or for Dad and I having to stand by and watch.  Anyway between us we got through and each day I am sure she will feel stronger :)

So over at Spectrum Noir our challenge for December is CAS you all know this is my favourite!
I haven't made many Christmas cards at all this year so I have got a few non Christmas cards to share over the next couple of weeks for the challenge.
The first one is using the super cute Bebunni...

I used the Aqua tints and a water brush to colour the image from the following collections 
Primary, Pastels and Bright and Beautiful
Derwent water colour paper
Ribbon from stash 
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat

Have a good day,
Thanks for popping over.

Warm Winter Wishes...

Hello to you all,
I sound like a worn out record but where does the time keep going to.....November already and Christmas just around the corner.  The year has absolutely flown by!

I have been lucky enough to have a play with the new Aqua tints from Spectrum Noir..........
They are really vibrant liquid watercolours that can be used for all sorts of techniques for backgrounds, mixed media etc..... But me being me I played it safe and used them to colour in my stamped images.   I am very impressed with the colours and the finished result.

Here is one of my all time favourite images from Forever Friends coloured using the Landscape and Bright & Beautiful range of tints.  The image was stamped onto water colour card.

Sentiment from Pink Petticoat,
Snowflake die - Lil Inkers
Notebook die - Memory box I think.....not 100%

Have a good day.
