Morning all, well yes its official, i have gone crazy of how soon christmas is! some of you may have noticed the fab little ticker at the bottom! Yes 88 days to go - still have so much to do, also want to try and beet the christmas rush this year - hate trawling the shops and not being able to get what I want for people! May do it all online this year - mmmm!
Well as some of you may know I went to the Big Stamp and Scrap-booking Show yesterday at Alexandra Palace yesterday! Had a fab day - although i did swear at my dads sat nav on more than one occasion, oh and mum forgot to set it to take us home - good job I chose to ignore what it was saying!
I did make a number of purchases, Lili of the Valley Stamps, Card Blanks, Liquid pearls and many many more bits! I didn't know where to start once I had got the kids to bed, and so I inked each stamp up and started colouring, nothing felt like it was going right last night! But then it all fell together!
This is one of the lovely new stamps from Lili Of the Valley called Angel Harp - She is just stunning, I was so worried about colouring her - especially after seeing the FAB samples at the show yesterday! Didn't think I was going to be able to do her any justice at all! But I shocked my self! I coloured her in using my copics - I must remember to start taking notes of what colours i'm using!
This is the edge of the card blank - I thought it seemed quite Christmasy - I distressed it using tim holtz ink and then added liquid pearls and stickles to add some sparkle!
The die is one of the x-cut nesting shapes - again new purchase yesterday! I love them and cant wait to use them again! I couldn't believe how well they matched the shaped card blank - and i didn't even think about it at the time!
I coloured her using my copics, i then used my pencils around the edge and used the oil and stumps to blend, I then went all out and used my TH DI around the edge too! I was so happy when I looked at here - I added finishing touched using liquid Pearls! You cant see it very well but i did cover her wings in stickles too!
