Little touch of Christmas

hi there everyone
hope the weather is being kind to you
i sat colouring yesterday  finished a card last night

sorry picture is alittle dark 
i wanted to try and get the white glitter embossed snowflakes to show on the Centrua Pearl card in the back ground
i thought this LOTV stamp would be perfect on a plate style card
coloured in with my Spectrum Noir Pens
here is a list of the colours i have used
GB2- GB3- GB6- GB8- GB11- EB6CR3- DR3- DR5- DR7- IG1- IG3 HB3- BGR1- BGR2- BGR3 – Blender

Friday Fun

Good Morning Everyone
what a day it was yesterday  dry as a bone till 6 pm
then the heavens opened got pretty scary at one point ….main drains on roads over flowed
thunder and lightening the full works…… i was looking for Noah to sail past…
here is the final plate i have made from the Jayne Nestorenko stamps

Venice seems very appropriate with all this rain

as with the other 2 plates  this was water colour painted matted onto pre printed paper
  then onto Centrua Pearl Card
i hope where ever you are your safe  we have more rain on the way so they tell us
have a great weekend and thank you for popping by
