Fairy Christmas Wishes!

I had wanted this Karen Middleton image for a long time and with my Cuddly Buddly prize, I finally got it - love it!. So much fun coloring this little pixie in monocrome blue copics. I took the plunge and used my glue and glitter, too. I got lost in sketchland (as there was one posted on Feline, but it said you had to get permission if you were going to use it in a challenge - odd?? since I found it on a "challenge blog"...) Anyway, I find myself very much reliant on the sketches nowadays - how bout you? Enjoyed my cuttlebug a bit with nesties and sizzix dies, and my favorite swiss dot embossing folder.

Have a FAB week!

RECIPE:Karen Middleton-image from Cuddly Buddly; Basic Gray-DP; Sizzix-circles, flourish, snowflake dies; Spellbinders nestabilities- lacey die, embossing; Cuttlebug-swiss dot embossing folder; bazzill cardstock; LSS-ribbon; copic markers

What a fabulous card. I love the colors and your style of painting. I love the way in which you used the Nestabilities and how you embossed your papers, just everything about it. I found you through Outlawz. I have been looking through your blog and I hope you are proud of your work because you should be. You are a wonderful colorist and designer.
Thank you for sharing with us.
