Dreamer and Fox/Pee Update


Hi all, hope you are enjoying your Sunday! We are basking in glorious Sunday here in old London town, which is great at this time of year, but not when it gets to August. The heat then becomes oppressive and all you hear is people moaning how awful it is (OK that'll be me). I grew up in totally ideal surroundings. I am from a town called Struer in Denmark and we are surrounded by forests, a beautiful lake, and several coastlines offering the most perfect beaches. I used to walk to the beach one way, into the forest the other way, and have a huge beautiful lake in front of us. It is only now I truly appreciate how lucky I was.

Anyway, let me give you a quick update on my recent foxy post. IT WORKED! 100% success, and we haven't had to reestablish our marks. So this is a method I can truly recommend! Yeah!!

Have a look at this:




Isn't she DIVINE??? This is Dreamer from our new Pixie collection (available soon). I love love love love LOVE her!!

I tried colouring the hair differently this time, using blue instead of grey (as most people do). My reasoning for this is that very dark hair often shows blue when light hits it; I think it looks very effective and I'm really pleased with it.



Products used here:
Images: Dreamer from the soon to be released Pixie collection - only available at Charmed Cards & Crafts. Sentiments also from that collection.
Papers: Basic Grey Porcelain. AC Plain cardstock.
Embellishments: The chipboard rose flourish is K&Co Madeline. Circles behind the main picture are K&Co Sea Glass. Pearls are K&Co Blue Awning, I coloured every other pearl with a Copic marker. Black and cream lace is Llewelyn-Bowen Fabric Strips. Wings are decorated with Stickles Crystal.
Colouring:The background of Dreamer, the sentiments background, and indeed Dreamer herself, were all coloured with Copic marker pens. I also used Distress Inks on the Dreamer background.



I hope you like this wonderful new addition to the Charmed family :-)

Come back later when I will announce the winner of my little blog stash.

Have a lovely day ♥

Oh my this card is beautiful and I really like the blue in the hair, much more realistic. I will be so glad when we can get these stamps in the U.S. I haven't tried the downloads since I don't know if I have the proper programming. I will try one of these days. Again, great job of coloring on this adorable "little pixie?"
