Autumn Witch by Twistoon Stamps

Well I did it - I tried to make a video tutorial of my colouring of this image called Autumn Witch - but it's so much harder than it looks! I have uploaded the finished result in case you wish to check it out ;) 

Please note that at the end of the video I didn't like the right hand side of her hair above the leaf - so I darkened the shadows there with C10.

Getting Ready for Christmas

Recently I saw a friend had made a "flip flap" card and I loved the concept. I watched this tutorial and decided to adapt the concept to fit as a topper on my standard 5 1/2" square cards. I cut down the number of flaps from 3 to 2 to make it work. I then drafted the pattern in my silhouette cameo to make life easier for me ;)

I always loved paper dress up dolls as a kid, so thought Lula Fairy Doll would be a great image to use. The card front became her "bedroom" and the flaps the doors to her wardrobe. Inside the wardrobe, hanging up ready to wear for that special day, are some of the clothes from Lula Christmas Elf (clothes only) 

The papers I used are digital papers from Mo Manning - on the front is Colorful Trees and on the back is Silver Blue Ornaments. I have sized these to work as I wanted them to on my project. 

Other clothing options available for Lula are Lula Butterfly and Lula Angel Wings

Most of the dies I used are from La-La Land Crafts

I hope you enjoyed my fun little project.

Kissing Frogs by Mo Manning

Something a little different from me - a little more pastel! This is the uber cute Kissing Frogs by Mo Manning and I just felt the soft pinks and muted greens suited her more than my usual bold colour palette. I tied her in with some foil embossed designer paper for added fantasy.

I hope you find her as magical as I do.
