Free Spirit

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well this Saturday morning? Things have dried up a wee bit here in NE Scotland, although the sun is still MIA. My tumble dryer man came yesterday, sorted what the problem is, but didn't fix it. I have to wait until Tuesday to get it mended - can you believe that??!! So I struggle on. . .

My card today features one of my new images 'Free Spirit', available now in my Delicious Doodles Shop. I named her this, after the saying 'free as a bird' - there is a bird in the image. It's meant to be a Raven, but looks more like a crow! LOL. Whatever! You guys can colour it however you like anyways.
I have used a sketch from Friday Sketchers for my layout. Thought it was time I played there again after a few weeks of not doing so.

This also fits a few more challenges. Magical Monday's theme this week is 'Pink and White', at Pixie Dust their theme is also 'Pink', Flutterby Wednesday's theme is 'open + butterfly, fairy or angel', Crafty Creations theme is 'Winged Things', Craftalicious has a theme of 'Pearls and Swirls', and the SCSC challenge is 'Girly' this week.

My swirly papers are from Tinker & Co and Funky Hand. The swirly border is my own creation, in an art nouveau style to match the image. Ribbons, pearls, and stickles from the stash. Punches for the flower and leaves from local craft shop.

I'm really liking how these new 'Alfonse Mucha' style images are turning out. I have used his paintings as a starting point to base my image on, with added elements of my own, like fairy wings for example. So be warned - you may be seeing more of these in the future!! LOL

OK then, my DT work beckons - see ya later peeps - have a great weekend!

Oh and don't forget my FREEBIE bash all this coming week

See you there folks!!
