Soon be Christmas!!

Hello my friends.
Well here we are in November - can you believe it?
Before you know it Christmas will be here.
Now talking of Christmas, I have a Christmas card to show you.
This is for our new challenge over at Creatalicious Challenges.
For this challenge we are sponsored by:
Lacey from www.stampandcreate.com is offering this fabulous gift cert. for the winner.

Store  -  Blog

So for my card I have used:
Snow Bunny Ethereal Enchantress from Lacy Sunshine
And here she is:
I loved this image as soon as I saw it.
She is coloured with my Polychromo pencils and I have used distress ink to add in a few little hillocks for her to sit on.
I decided to stick with all blues for Christmas and that included her hair! hehe
I have added some glitter to the icicles but I'm not sure you can actually see it in the pics.  It is there though, honest! 
I decided the bottom two pieces to the side of the image looked a bit bare. So I found out some cute little white flowers and leaves and added those to one side.
And then used one of my Clarity Word Chain stamps to add the word Peace to the other side.
I am quite pleased with how this one turned out and I hope you like her too.

I do hope you get chance to hop over to Creatalicious this month and join in, I would love to see your wonderful creations.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hot inside and cold outside!

Hello my lovelies.
Well, here we are in November - crikey 8 more weeks and the Big Man will have been and gone!
Don't know where this year has gone to - really I don't.
So, time once again for a new challenge at Through the Purple Haze.
This time our fabulous sponsor is:
KennyK shop badge
For this challenge I have used Blair Blaze
So the theme is hot inside and cold outside right?
So I couldn't resist colouring her like flames:
I have used my Polychromo pencils for this image - I love how the waxy pencils blend together so beautifully.
The background is made using a Clarity 9 x 11 stencil called Treescape Stencil
Originally I was going to make a card, but after printing and colouring the image I decided she was too big for a card so decided to go a bit mixed media and do a canvas.
I placed a moon stencil behind the trees but I think I was a bit heavy handed with the stencil brush because you can hardly see it.
I spritzed the ink with water to make it look like snow and added stickles glue along the grass lines.
I added the little owl in the top corner (a) to make it a bit more interesting and (b) because I think he is cute! Lol
So there you have it - my mixed media hot inside cold outside canvas.

Hope you can find time to pop in and join in with the challenge - I know it is getting busier around about now but it would be lovely if you could.
