I coloured them with Copics used  white core-dinations and Prima Nature Garden papers.
The are accessorised with Magnolia Leaf & Swirl and  Simon Stamps Bella BloomMemory Box Cherry Blossom and Fancy Blossoms.

Everybody Art Challenge

Here we are again with Everybody Art Challenge and here is my card.
Now I have to admit I didn't read the challenge properly - I just read monochrome and my brain missed out  the blue - ooooops!!!  Fortunately I chose a blueish mauve so I was accepted - phewww!!!  I spent ages colouring the image so I would have cried if I had to ditch it.

My image is from Mo's called Winter Fairy Talva and coloured here with Copics.
I have used Glossy accents on the icicles on her wings, her snowball in Glamour Dust, her hat and pom-poms in Flower Soft, her shoes in Fun Flock, the showflakes are Liquid Pearls and she is sat on Stardust Stickles. I think this is all a little exessive - I spent ages waiting for all these items to dry!!!

My snowflakes are cut with a Impression Obsession die which I have added flowers, the icicles by Marianne a I have finished by a small bow and a snowflake charm.

Now I am off to the Doctor, I hurt my back last week (I won't tell you - you will only laugh!!) I can stand up, I can lie down put I can't sit - commenting has become something of a nightmare - kneeling up at the computer is do much for my knees!!
Thanks for stopping bye
