So today was my birthday, I mostly chilled out as work has been so stressful lately it was so lovely to do nothing. Although I did go out for a bite to eat and a very short browse round the shops because my hubby's not been well with man flu! I did a bit of cooking (made a Tagine) and did some colouring. I also got some amazing presents amongst them a new digital camera and a copy stand so hopefully very soon I'll be able to take some fab photos, but for now we'll just have to make do with my iPad.
This is the result from one of the images i coloured today. She's called meet dragonfly from Ching-Chou Kuik. I decided to make her a blonde haired beauty and to do her in a spring theme using green and white/creams. I've mounted her into some black card stock to frame the image.
Papers are from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Timeless Victorian, Shabby Shack and Heartfelt. All the papers and the image have been torn/distressed.
Underneath the image is some lace I purchased in Hobby Craft a while ago. The flowers, hortensias are from Live and Love Crafts are tied with a piece of the same lace.
The final touches to this card are some pearlised and green self adhesive gems.
Here's to been another year older and plenty more crafting :)
