Christmas in Pink!!

Good Morning All!
I really can't stop using these images so have bought a few more, they are from lili of the valley.
I have used my new lacey spellbinders for this one, I have cut 2 and layered them both with the plain circle nestabilities also. I then made a strip of card in the coordinating colour like a consertina to attach the card from the rear. I love this shape of card, it is around 4 inches in size so quite small but still I think this works great.

The image has been coloured in my beloved promarkers. I usually use 2 or 3 different shade variations of the coat but this time I only used 1 and to make that watercolour look I have also added the blender pen after. If you haven't got many colours then the blender pen is a must!!

I have used the Tim Holtz distress inks around the edge (spun sugar) and blended them whilst still in the nestie to make the edge refined. The flowers are from marianne minis poinsettias they are a little fiddly but gives a great embellishment when covered with the diamond dust twinklets, it has a finish like fine glass.
The sentiments are from Cuddly Buddly which come in a set of 4 for the festive occasion, great for the cute cards. These have been embossed in pink and finished with of course the glamour dust, as is the same glitter used to finish the image off for that super sparkly snowy effect.

Well hope I have covered most of this one, if you have any questions about the products used please do send me a message or leave a comment.

Thanks for looking I will be posting again soon.
