Back to those Chrissy cards....

I had a ball up in Devonport spending as much time as I could in my friends craft shop.
Catching up with all the staff and sitting down with customers giving them tips with their copics.

Of course there is never enough time to do or see all that I would have liked.

All too soon we were back home but it was good to see the Midlands looking green,
not lush but green never the less. The sheep were actually eating grass!!!!!.

The north is lush but they have had a lot of rain this winter.

I have been madly making Chrissy cards since getting home and hope to find time to post some for you to see tomorrow.

For this one I have used the sketch from Papertake weekly but that was last week, drat.  However as it is anything goes I am sure they wont mind me entering this.
Actually this paper is quite hard to co-odinate as well as the dark red and green it
has blues and cream.
Tilda's dress I coloured with BG000 and BG01
Then decided this was just too blue so it is covered with G000 and Goo
now it matches the colour in the top left hand corner of the pattern.
Her wings have been stickled and I used my spica pen on her hair and in the blue shadow beneath her.
The hair really shows up.

Am entering this in:
