I sat down on New Year's Day to have a little crafty sesh ... and having got yesterday's PBSC DT card done and dusted, I was raring to go with some new challenges ...
.... so I picked my WOJ Melinda image specifically so that I could enter the fab brand new ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for Angels (she was the only angel image I have that I could possibly adapt for a Christmas challenge lol ... but I think it works!) ... and I also included the "extra" of a charm :-)
.... I picked a sketch to follow, over at Papertake Weekly #31 ....
... and I picked my colours for the challenge .. but OH NO! the Colour Create challenge of pink, burgundy and ivory finished on Thursday 31/12 - doh!
Oops! Never mind - 2 out of 3 ain't bad! In fact this card was really a double oops! as I had a bit of an inky accident while colouring poor Melinda's face ... but seeing as I had already coloured all her clothes with Twinklers (the residue from which caused the accident when I wasn't concentrating on cleaning my brush!!) I just couldn't bear to throw the image away, so I just had to tone down the colouring as best I could lol!
Main image: WOJ "Confirmand Melinda" coloured with Twinkling H2O's & watercolour pencils, edges distressed with Versmark chalk ink, and wings decorated wtih glamour dust;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards "Oh! My Words";
Papers: BasicGrey "Eskimo Kisses";
Supplies: flower - Prima; cream tea roses from Hobbycraft, decorated with stardust Stickles; "Joy" charm from my stash;
Tools: Fiskars paper trimmer "deckle" blade; Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder; Spellbinders "doodles" shapeabilities.
While it's still going on with multiple entries allowed, I thought I'd also enter this as my god-knows-how-many-eth attempt for Creative Card Crew #41 - Anything Goes ;-)
Oh well ... back to work tomorrow and limited craft time :-(
