New Releases at Crafts & Me

I got this pretty girl in my post a couple of weeks ago to have a play with for release day which should be tomorrow!  She's by Molly Harrison and is part of the Crafts & Me range of stamps and is called The Gift.  Teresa should be loading them in the shop tomorrow so check out the new releases here

I've coloured her with promarkers, to get the really light blue effect use cool aqua around the edges and the blender pen, this gives it a blue shadowy look.  I've also scribbled a clear sakura stardust pen on her and uickly blended in with my finger so her dress is sparkly,  I've coloured her wings with glamour dust (also on the flowers) and added an ickle swarovski blue bead to the centre of the snowflake.  The lace is all glittery and the swirls are a prezzie from my girlfriend Corry (thanks petal x) 
Paper is from Bearly Mine designs and is a freebie so go grab it and leave Donna a comment :)

Absolutely stunning Vix. I am always in awe of your work.
I have lost my mojo big time. Going to try and make it my new years resolution to start again and try and make at least 1 card a week :(

Another absolute work of art. I wish I could come up with such beauty at the rate you do. Your head must just be full of ideas all bursting to get out.

Thanks for the explanation on the colouring too.
