Blue Wonderland

Howdy people. Been slightly MIA this week. Don't know where the time has gone to be honest. No Sunday Catch Up from me this week, instead I have a Christmas Card to share with ya. Yum. Part of another commission. :)

Here is a lovely LOTV creation which I put together for a lady from work. Non traditional colours!! I know. I just felt like it. Was getting a bit bored of the whole green and red combo, even with Jovial, and even with some browns and creams thrown in. This image is sorta fun loving anyway, so I thought it would lend itself well to brighter colours.


I've coloured the image using Copics and ProMarkers and added my version of a night time background with my cool greys. I've distressed and stamped the edges of my image portion with Tumbled Glass DI.

Of course, I've added some mandatory doodles and distressed the cardstock edges with more Tumbled Glass DI. A few WOC flowers, gemstone brads and white liquid pearls are all that's needed.

This cute sentiment is from a Hero Arts set stamped with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink. Anyone know what that font is?! Love it!! 

Anywho, that's just about it from me for today. Off to get some stamping, printing and colouring done. Be back tomorrow with another Pollycraft reminder for our CHALLENGE SPECIAL.
