And this was my colour palate, isn't it gorgeous!
Then added some pinks and plums. Background done!
This is a new to me stamp set, and I couldn't wait to use it. The girl reminds me of my sister and as she's been know to drink a small sherry at Christmas, this card is for her ;-)
Not much to see here, I wanted to watercolour her face and arms so I gave her a layer of clear gesso, and put her to one side to dry. I then promptly forgot that I'd done this, thought it was waste, and tried out some stamping! Luckily she isn't wearing this dress tonight!
Hair and make up done - check. I'm ashamed to admit that I took far more care to do hers than I ever do doing my own.
The little blue dress is an off cut from the base, you may recognise the holly pattern...
I must admit that I wasn't thrilled with it when it came to putting it together, so I left it for the night and took another look in the morning. I still had nothing, so I took a look at my favourite sketch challenge Mojo Monday and chose a sketch that I liked and worked around that. I made another painty background, and die cut some snowflakes etc and I was off again!
So team Kangaroo needs you! Please join in with our challenge - anything Christmas related, it doesn't have to be a card, and remember Anything Goes!
Thanks very much for looking, and have a great week xx
