Hi all, I actually have a card to share with you today it has taken me a little time to get it finished as I am still finding it hard going at the moment.  I do want to thank everyone who has left me comments on my previous posts you are all so kind, I think I have caught up on most of the commenting but will try and do some more later.
My card today features a digi image available from Elisabeth Bell called 'Christmas Belle's' I have coloured her with both Graph it Markers and Copics, The papers are Bearly Mine both image and papers have been mounted onto gold mirror card, I cut the circle in gold mirror card with a die from Spellbinders, I added some lace and a recycled cake decoration, I used a small punch for the snowflakes
A closer view of the image

Such a real Christmas feel to this one Lorraine, coloured beautifully. I don't know why our mojos disappear sometimes-happens to us all though but frustrating when it does. It certainly doesn't show in your lovely card xx

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Lorraine! I'm sorry your mojo is still bogged down, but your design certainly doesn't show it! This is not only beautiful, but slightly cute, slightly sweet, slightly vintage-like, and gorgeously colored!! How pretty the layers are - and all this done in your amazing Lorraine style!

Seriously, I do understand about taking days or weeks to complete acard. Some how my body and mind cannot sync, so I just do a little at a time.

Lorraine, do you get your papers together and then color your image to match? Or do you color fisrt, and then search your papers?
Hope You are soon feeling more like your creative self! XO

Davi said...
