Thought it was about time I made a Christmas card. Don't know why I wanted to, maybe it was something to do with the image. I drew Christina a couple of weeks back and wanted to make something with it then, but hadn't got round to it yet. Lord knows I haven't been in the mood for anything to do with Christmas just yet, still not really what with all that has been going on in this house recently, but it's a case of forcing oneself to get on with it!!
Anyways, I coloured Christina in with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned her in and printed her off the right size a few times for my layering. I also used my Poinsettia Corner for this card, up in the top left, coloured in white to match the one in her hair.
I layered the image onto gold mirri, then onto a frameabilities die shape which I had threaded some gold metallic ribbon through. My dp is from Bearly Mine Designs, and I smudged some green ink round the edges of that before sticking it all to some dark green card. Last thing I added was a few little red pearls in the top right corner, and some stickles, which are hardly visible in these photos.
Righty then. Need to get off here and get on with decorating the kids rooms. We couldn't be bothered to wait for the builders to take the panels down that protected the inside of the house whilst they rebuilt the external wall. Effing blokes have been FOREVER getting round to finishing what they started. Still waiting for them to retile the roof, and fit some new windows. At the rate they aren't going it will be spring before they get here. That's if the roof tiles don't come down in all the snow during the winter.
So we started to remodel and decorate the girls' room a couple of weeks back after doing out our kitchen. Still putting the finishing touches to it, but then it's the turn of our son who is very slow at tidying it all away for us to work in there. Might end up with us doing it for him!! LOL
OK, I'm off now then. Catch ya later peeps!!
