This set is really called "Lily and Friends" but Lily reminds me so much of my little niece Sweepie. Sweepie loves to wear pink and even got a pink dressy coat and matching pink hat and mitten set for Christmas. I colored the image with colored pencils and Goo-Gone (my favorite method of coloring), and added some sparkle with pink glitter EP and different colors of stickles. Again I shaded the background with chalks and a cotton ball.
I am a season behind on this one, but I only got a chance to play with this set yesterday. The background is made with ink and cotton balls and the leaves are heat embossed with clear EP.
It's nice to have a little break to play. This is for SCS Color Challenge 198. The task was to use Orchid Opulence, Cameo Coral, and So Saffron all on the same card. I used my new SU preview set Echoes of Kindness for this. I colored the image with colored pencils and Goo-Gone then went over the edges with chalk on a cotton ball.

The background of the main image was made using Tim Holtz's alcohol inks, metallic ink, and mixative on glossy paper. I dripped all the inks and mixative on a craft sheet and then smooshed and swirled glossy paper on top of it. The scarf is from a cuttlebug Disney die and folder

The semester is over for me and so it is time for some fun. I decided to try the 3D stamping technique and it worked really well with this stamp. I went over the bells with a versamarker and then used glittered EP. The snowflake is from a small Dollar Tree ornament. I find a lot neat little things to use as embellishments at Dollar Tree.

I did so well on my my exam Thursday that I thought I would take the night off from studying and play! I decided to make another Christmas card but I stole the sketch from Julee Tillman. This was fun but it took a while. The angels are punched from silver cardstock then covered with platinum Stickles. I also used Stickles on the Cuttlebug background to make it look like stars. I have another Christmas card that I started but I need to spend most of the weekend studying so I don't know if I can post it before next weekend.
