Tuesday Twosome

Morning peeps, as promised back again.  two cards again for you today, I am being good aren’t I!!!  I am trying to get as many cards done today as possible as with only 27 days left to Christmas I think it is time I made a start on my Christmas Shopping.  I am going into Canterbury tomorrow we have a fabulous German Christmas Market there so hopefully I will be able to get some unusual pressies and decorations, BUT!!!!!! if its busy I will be straight back and do my shopping on the tinternet, cannot do with all that pushing an shoving.

Sorry the pictures a bit fuzzy, got shaky hands it’s just thinking about all the money I will be spending on presents and not crafty goodies, it really hurts Smile
I got these beautiful Pion Papers from Dies to Die For, I love the vintage feel of them and tried to carry that feeling right through the card.  I have coloured Tilda with Copics and Polychromos Pencils and have added a little Stickles “Stardust” to her hat and around the edge of the image.
The Roses and Branches are cut with Sizzix Tim Holtzs Alterations Die Tattered Pine Cone, the roses should be pine cones but I have squashed then down to make a rose, I cut the roses and branches from white card and Distressed the edges with Walnut stain Distress Ink and both sides of the rose with the same colour,
For the Blue Roses I again coloured white card with Iced Spruce  Distress Ink then cut into 2 x 2 “ squares  sketched a  rough spiral on the inked square  and roughly tore out the spiral and rolled into shape (thanks to Leann Chivers  for this idea).
The Copics Used for TildaFlesh: E11, E21, E000Hair E71, E70, E40, Hat E40, Boots E70, E40, Coat B97, B95, B91
My Second Card is another sneak peek of the Mabel Lucy Atwell CD and Papercraft Sets  that are released next week on Ideal World & Create and Craft.
This was made with the Die-Cut Decoupage Set, I must admit I am not a fan of decoupage but I really enjoyed making this card.
Have a good day (or whats left of it).

Oh wow, beautiful cards but I think the first one is my favourite...super colours and those roses look fab.

I can't stand queues & crowds either so I hope your shopping trip turns out how you wanted.
