Another dose of winter cuteness

Hi all, it's time for a new Phindy's Challenge again! The theme is METAL this week - so all you need to do is to use metal and Phindy's image on your card!

The image you see on my card is one of the Christmas Cuties called Miss Chrissy Tree. I've been itching to play with her for a while - I just think her so fun and whimsical!

The colouring is done with Copic markers and some extra shadowing added with Prismacolor pencils.

For a metal I've used a brads, flower centers, a tree charm, chain, flourishes and filigree corners. Most of them were silver but I forced them to gold with Copic marker (y17).

The papers are from Basic Grey Jovial pad - love the colours! The flowers are cut from the same pad with Marianne's dies and then shaped.

I would love to enter following challenges:
ABC Christmas (2 weeks) - CHRISTMAS and x is for xmas
Crafty Creations - christmas 
Freshly Brewed - winter or christmas
Little Red Wagon - use basic grey products 
Artful Inkables (2 weeks) - die cuts and punches
Allsorts - lace, ribbon and a charm 
Papercraft Star - gift card featuring a Christmas tree (hehe)

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Hi my blogging Buddy,this has got to be my favourite card of the week,the image is so adorable. By the way,I love the card you recommended,I'm so pleased with how much better the Copics look on it. Also,do you have Paperchase in Ireland? was in there today and they had little note books of "Kraft paper" I know you were after some,don't know for sure that it's exactly the same thing as you are after but it looks very much like it.Have a great weekend,Julie.x

Ms. Jen said...

I'm running out of comment ideas for you girl! You just keep making these amazing, stunning, magical cards and they get better every day. You need to publish a book of ideas for all of us up and coming crafters! LOL I'd buy it. Really sweetie it's just fabulous and your coloring is out of this world lately.

Ms. Jen said...

One more thing! I meant to tell you I made my first order from 7 kids last month or the end of Oct. can't remember now. Anyway, they took FOREVER to mail out my stuff. I placed two other orders and had my stuff long before I even got the email that 7 kids was mailing it. Then there was an item on back order and I still don't have it. Does that sound normal? As of now, I probably won't order from them again. It was frustrating.

Davi said...
