CHNC Christmas #518, 28th Nov.

This weeks anything goes twist is  "things with wings"  I chose an old image from Lacy Sunshine, called "Sugar Plum Fairy Enchantress" coloured with copic pens and fussy cut, extra glitter and liquid pearls complete the image.

I cut and layer the die cut onto some sticker paper, then added green and red glitter to the sticky parts that were showing through.

Typed Sentiment and some small flowers complete the card.

The Crafter's Cafe #253 - 1st November Anything Goes

 This fortnight the challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is Anything Goes, just for fun.

 I've been filling in some blank pages in my 2020 Bullet Diary and believe me there are a number of blank pages.  Doesn't look like I have done much through the year at all. 

Images have been coloured with copics and fussycut.  Ton the pages with some mixed media as well.

 Left hand page, features and image from Angie's Digitals, called 2 baby chicks.  The image reminded me of the isolation we have all had this year. Also some stamping and collage.


 The right hand page, features an image from Wink Wink Ink, called Falling Apart.

Together they make a friendship spread for my diary.  Yes! I am over the whole year.
