Sisters


Hi everyone, at last my back is feeling better, so I've been able to play today.
I've really enjoyed making this card and I've used the cuttlebug christmas tree as the focal point. This was kindly sent to me by my dear friend Ali, (unfortunately I don't have this folder myself) and I've coloured it with pencils and then blended with Sansador and paper stumps, all finished off with a few touches of stickles glitter glue. I haven't used this form of colouring for ages and had forgotten how calming it can be.
I have used 2 of the new Magnolia christmas images (coloured with Pro Markers) for these sweet little sisters who are trimming the tree with tinsel and hanging the decorations. I just love their little stripey stockings!
The backing paper is from my stash and has been mounted onto some holographic silver miri card.
Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my cards and for the lovely comments you've been leaving me.
