Well, my card that I finally manage to photograph. It's still a card for the new challenge over at the Paper Shelter Winter birthdays with sentiments and cold colours. I have used the lovely image called winter goddess. She is really lovely and it was a joy to colour her in just as it always is with the TPS images.
I have paired her up with some lovely cold dps from Panduro in blue and lilac pink. Added some flowers from wild orchid crafts, a charm that I think comes from ROX stamps. I covered it in gesso and glitter to tone it down a bit. Around the edges did I use some glittery stripes that I have had for ages and used all theh time before. A swirly die that I got from Joanna Sheen. I cut it down to pieces to fit the card better. Also a whole bunch of punched snowflakes cut in with CS and some old gemstones to give them a shine. The lace came from the super market. Nice and broad it it is, love that and wish I had bought some more of it. They only have it for Christmas. Later this year I make a great stock up of that. LoL My sentiment is tiny but it's there and it simply says "Grattis" (congrats in Swedish). The stamp I had planned to use was to big for the space I had left, so major rethinking there.
Anyway, I am really pleased that I managed to finish this off and get it blogged in time. I will reward myself and spend an hour our so colouring before going to bed. I think I deserve it. LoL
Thank you to you who have left the kind comments on my blog even if I have been a really, really bad blogging friend during the last month. I really do hope to do better this year, as soon as I learn to handle the stress I feel right now and the tiredness. I think I have to do something about how and when and what I am eating and more important, learn to relax and breath. Easier said than done, but I need to give it a go.
As always the big gift voucher is up for those of you playing with a TPS image, and three images of your choice playing with another brand.
Love n hugs
