Joyful Glinda

It's still anything goes month over at Stampotique, so guess what, I've made a Christmas card, as rumour has it, it's not too far away now lol.
I started by cutting the TH Joy in a piece of black card. When it was actually pointing the right way round I realised it was at the top so I started by cutting... AT THE BOTTOM.
I stamped France's brilliant Village along the bottom edge, embossed in white,  and coloured with Prisma pencils and some children's cheap as chips oil pastels.
I love the bright colours lol. The stars and snow are from France's Design Cube.
I just needed my fairy now so I used Janet Klein's, Glinda from her Wizard of Oz collection. It was the first time she had been inked so that made me a very happy bunny.
I coloured her in Prisma pencils and Distress Markers using the technique show by the amazing Christine Dark in Craft Stamper. Mines not brilliant but I'm really pleased with it as a first attempt.
Next I just made a tall thin card and matted some red mirri on so the Joy would show through, trimmed the tops off and Bob's your uncle.
Hope you like it, and find time to play along. I know time's really tight at the moment, but you can make anything you like as long as you use real stamps and not digis.
Thanks very much for looking x

Love the "joyful" scene you have created here, Sue. The colors of the homes just pop off the page! Glinda is perfect as our guardian angel watching over us.

This is such a gorgeous card, I love the way you have coloured it, and the village and the fairy are just right. Thanks for your description of how you made it, that always makes me appreciate the final artwork all the more.
