CHNC Christmas #430

The theme at CHNC Christmas this weeks is Anything Goes, optional "Inspired by a Christmas Song or Carol.

I have used Bugaboo Xmas trio - Reindeer, coloured with copic pens and layered onto red cardstock.

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
"Rudolph, with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"
Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You'll go down in history"

Easter Eggs

This month's Progressive freebie at The Outlawz is "Eggs" from Sandra VanBlaricum.  I took the image away with me on holiday to have a play around, taking minimal supplies, I started colouring with pencils, then watercolour pencils and finally some fineline markers.

I typed a sentiment I found on the net, at the same time I printed the image, which I had doubled up.
Liquid pearls and some glitter have been added (sorry it is not a good photo, but it has been raining all morning, and I just ran out took a snapshot), the glitter is not so heavy in real life.

The blue matting is Easter egg silverpaper.  I have a good sized box of different colours as I used to make silverpaper pictures until the different chocolate maker brands started adding their names to the silverpaper.  Bummer! haven't made a picture for a while, might put it on my to do list for this year. For those of you who haven't seen one, I have added a picture of one of mine below.

So just check the kid's Easter eggs and if you can manage to get some foil that isn't too damaged you may be able to add it to your cards.

Southern Girls Challenge 21 March, 2019

The theme this fortnight at Southern Girls is "For Someone Special"

I have used an image from A day for Daisies, called "Strawberry Birthday cake" and made a birthday card for my daughter, who can't eat chocolate, so I made a vanilla iced cake.  Bit of mixed media going on here.

The icing has been made with texture paste and Fresco Finish chalk acrylics (Butter cream of course) I have taken a close up so you should be able to some textured.

Next the straeberries and cherries have been coloured with copic pens, the cherries have also had a coating of glossy accents and a touch of white paint to highlight.  Then I added some gold liquid pearls.

The girl has been coloured with copic pens and her dress is paper piecing. Flowers, leaves, ribbon and sentiment complete the card.
