christmas was a whirlwind

So in a whirlwind of activity Christmas has been and gone! That went so fast.
I hope you had an amazing time with your friends and families.

Today I would love to share with you one of my Christmas cards.

I have made a few versions of this to give to family and friends so I have kept
the card relatively simple as the topic colouring was time consuming.

Don't forget to stop in at Bizzy Becs as you still have a couple of days to join our anything goes challenge.

getting ready for christmas

Hi There

So Christmas is nearly here and I thought for this months Design Team inspiration I would 
share a Christmas card.

I have used my Favourite, copics to colour the Wild Rose Studio Robins on a branch stamp.

After colouring I have die cut the image and layered it on a second larger stitched oval 
die cut in metallic gold.

The Poinsettia's are a Memory box Die and I have cut them out in both metallic gold and red.

A few little white flowers and you're done.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you go have a look in Bizzy Becs online store 
for some great goodies.

Don't forget you will need to pre-order 

Take Care

still drawing

Hi There
I hope you're all enjoying the cooler weather while it lasts as Summer will officially be here
on Thursday!

I find it hard to believe that it is  almost December.

I have been drawing quite a lot and am trying out some new journals as well. if you know me already you will already get that I'm totally crazy  about art supplies and that I  collect them too! I love to try out new things when it comes to my journals and art.

Over the last few months I have been doing Jane Davenport's workshop Vitamin sea, and loving it!
Its been a watercolour dream.

these pages are from Jane's class and I found it a real challenge working on so many faces on a two page spread but I love how these girls turned out.

I started the drawings in a permanent ink pen, yes the epic pen! I then added layers of watercolour paints and some coloured pencil details.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.
