The Watchers

 Today I have only managed to make one after 3 mistakes, started again and 3 hours later this is the final result. I chose to make this one inspired by Laura Wenn's video tutorial called Coming into land. Trouble is with me I couldn't seem to get it into a smaller space so had to use the whole card front lol.

I have called mine - The watchers. It looks like there is no refelection in some parts, which there is, and you cannot see the water ripples clearly. Just can't get a decent picture

Anyhow here are the supplies I used

Card-io stamp sets used Textures, Beside the sea, Waterside walks, mini tall trees, Field flowers and Waters edge
Versacraft evergreen, Versacolor sky blue, Bisque, pinecone, imperial blue, royal blue and olive. Versafine clair Nocturne and shady lane

White gel pen for highlights along with white and brown pastel pencil in parts

Thank you for visiting me today and hope you like my card enough to start following me

Gnomes POE

 Hi all - it is time for our magical challenge over at Peace on Earth Christmas  following this mood board

Are they cute or what!!!!

Well I chose a gnome whom I downloaded from PNGwing.  He was a totally different character before I was finished wih him.  I used green polychromos to alter his colouring and pink for his nose.  I then used Anita's 3d gloss for nose and heart on his hat

Thank you for visiting.  I hope to see you all over at Peace on Earth Christmas  joining in with the fun - we would love to gain inspiration from you all

Under my umbrella

 This afternoon I managed to put this one together. I had yet another delivery of stamps today(and waiting for another as I type lol) I just couldn't work out what to make, I have far too many to choose from and my brain was getting so confused so I went and lay down on my bed and watched Luther for a couple of hours and came back to create.

For this one I used the following Card-io sets. Woodland Retreat, Whatever the weather, Textures, Wet weather, making a splash and Umbrella weather. I used greys for the belnding and stamping and for the umbrella I broke open a pack of Spectrum Noir sparkles pens I had not used before (only had them for at least a year). I also used a cloud stencil I have had for an absolute age.

Does anyone else forget what has been bought and not used. Have you noticed not a cat or mouse on this card lol

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again real soon.
