Good morning everyone. Hope you're having a great weekend.
Took Frazer to Sheffield Institute of Sport yesterday for a day of Volleyball training and whilst I was there I popped in to Meadowhall shopping Centre for a spot of Christmas shopping. Just a few more bits and bobs to get and then I'm there!
Another Christmas card to show you today. This one's a cute LOTV image - Festive Fairy. I've been wanting to buy here for ages and I'm so glad I did. This is her first inking and it will definitely not be her last!
The image was one of my first attempts at colouring with distress inks and I'm quitte pleased with the results. I must admit I've gone back to my copics for the moment, but I shall give DIs another go. Practice makes perfect, so they say.
Here's a close up of her. She's just such a cute image!
Distress inks I've used:
Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo,& Aged Mahogany
Clothes: Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany & Old Paper
Wings: Tattered Rose
Leaves: Peeled Paint & Forest Moss
Berries: Barn Door
Ribbon: Fired Brick
Snow: Weathered Wood
Outline: Tumbled Glass
I've used the lovely seem binding I got from Live & Love Crafts to finish off the tag and decorated the tree with some rhinestones and snowtex. I've never used that before, it's weired stuff, but very effective. I think I'm going to need to buy some more of those lovely Chrysanthemums from Live and Love Crafts because I can't stop adding them to my cards.
