A Christmas Card in Pink!!

After spending money on 2 on-line art journaling workshops plus Kate Cranes art journalling dvds I've decided that its not for me.  Basically... I just struggle with it!!!  I can't be random, I can't be messy, my mind just goes totally blank when faced with inks and paints.  So for now I am going to carry on admiring the works of Kate Crane, Dyan from AFTH, Roben Marie Smith and all those other artists who just totally wow me with their art journalling and for now do what I enjoy and that is scrapbooking and colouring those lovely stamps that the stamp fairy keeps bringing me :O)  So I have joined an on-line colouring class to improve on my colouring with Polychromos pencils.  That should keep me busy and quiet - they give you homework !!!
This card is for 2 challenges

Totally Tilda Challenge - Christmas with no reds, no greens and no blues 
Crafts 4 Eternity - a sketch to follow

Well a christmas card with Tilda on and no reds, greens or blues was easy - PINK!!  The sketch was a delight to work.   Christmas paper is from a pad I bought in the sale at The Range, Tilda has been coloured in with Polychromos pencils, used a couple of snowflakes dies and a few little pearls and here is my card...

Thanks for looking  xx

  11. Aw Polly, the cards are 'you'. You have given the messy splodgy stuff a go so at least you have tried it! We do have to go with what we enjoy, after all crafting needs to be relaxing and enjoyable. To spend time and effort on something out of your comfort zone would be a waste. I agree with Debs, your colouring is amazing, I really havent a clue with colouring as you know lol. Enjoy your new course..... will speak soon. Sue xxx

  12. Hi Polly...How could I have missed this little cutie....and 'Pink' you. I love it, its beautiful and Thank You so much for the Birthday Wishes. See you soon. BTW...I hope you know what you've started with those tags....
