Things with wings ( fairy girl)

Well this is my last blog entry today and it will also be my last challenge entry of the day

Lovely little stamp from CC designs
So i firstly coloured this lovely image with copics and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Spun sugar and Milled Lavender
She was then mounted onto  vellum that wa die cut using Spellbinders dies.
All the papers used were from a My Minds Eye 12 x 12 paper pad called Lost & Found
I then added a Papermania sticky border that i have become fond of for some reason. 
I wanted to add flowers but decided not too as i thought i t would overload the card.
Iknow plain and simple but it works! :-)
I would like to enter this card into Charisma Cards
Challenge 37 Thing with wings

A Gorjuss stamp
I loved creating this one
i inked some pearlescent card and then added two inked vertical strips.
I backed this lovely Gorjuss stamp onto paper, silver card (with ribbon criss corossed across it) from one end to the other and then added the topper which was inked with smudgy clouds and coloured as you usual with my favourite pens
Bye for now

I love making cards from scratch but sometimes you need to cheat a little to keep up with demand....I have quite a few crafting/christmas  events coming up first one being this week and i have done quite a few from the Hunky Dory christams toppers range....So here is one i made earlier!
I love their adorable scorable card and yeas it does what it says on the tin...

I used some of their lovely backing card, quite a bit of foil and matteed and layered and then popped a decoupaged winter scene ontop along with a matching sentiment (bought seperately) I dilded the edges with silver gilding flakes and finished it of with (ssshhhh dont tell Hunky Dory) Kanban blingy snowflakes.....i love the colours of the card and think they have worked well together.
Ta ta for now
