Soft sparkle

It's going to be a short post- we are still living in chicken pox land here, my youngest caught it as well and has a pretty bad time of it.

The challeneg at Stamp Something is Something Glittery this time. I used sparkly texture paint, Stickles and Shimmer Spray to give the card a subtle(ish) sparkle.
The colouring is a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils.
The image is from LOTV - I needed a baby card and this cutie was just PERFECT.
The paper is from October Afternoon. Doily is dug out from my stash, covered with texture paint and then sprayed with Shimmer Mist.
Wishing you all a happy new beginning - may the year 2011 be kind to you!

Wowzer Annika - your colouring just gets better and better (if that's possible) - this is totally adorable. I am so sorry to hear that your little ones are not well - I do hope they are feeling better very soon. Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and peaceful 2011 - Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Ooohh, so sorry the kiddies are still down for the count, but hopefully very soon you will banish the 'pox once and for all. Your card, of course, is fabulous. I love what you did with that doily, I used one for the first time today and its whiteness grated on me so I was considering options for coloring the next one. So thanks for showing me a possibility. I'm still lovin' that October Afternoon paper and the gingham ribbon is the perfect finsher.

Wishing you and your family the best of blessings in this new year.

Just STUNNING as usual i dont know how you colour so fabulously! sorry to hear about the chicken pox, but it will be fine and at least its done. I remeber having to take my daughter to A&E she was a nightmare with it and really poorly but all they told me to do was to give her more antihistamine and go home.
She was fine as your s will be too!
Big happy new year hugs Di xxxx
