Christmas Angel!

Hello my crafty friends! First, let me say I am so sorry for the confusion on the aura technique I talked about that Kylie does.  I had emailed her and she was kind enough to explain it to me over email a few days ago and she didn't have anything on her blog about it.  Well, you will happy to know that since then she has done a little tutorial on the technique and you can find it HERE.  She has an amazing talent with those copics.

It's FRIDAY!!! Yippee!!! Another challenge at Just Magnolia.  We have a super sketch from Dawny.  

Here is what I did with it!

You can see I am having a lot of fun playing with the new LOTV circle sentiments that are coming out soon!  

I used an image from last year again because as I said before, they didn't get much use. ha ha!  I think she is very sweet.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia - Tilda as Christmas Angel and LOTV Circle Sentiments
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  Bo Bunny - Snowy Serenade
Tools:  Martha Stewart Border Punch, MS Pine Branch Punch, Sewing Machine
Embellies:  Curly Roses, White Cherry Blossoms that I painted with a combination of Aged Mahogany and Walnut to get the rich shade of red, tan pearls all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would love to answer any questions that you may have, but sometimes someone will ask me a question on the comments section and then it takes me a while to figure out where to answer if you do not have a craft related blog.  Please feel free to email me, that is always to best way to get a quick response from me.  I don't mind at all! I love chatting about crafting!!!!

That's about it for me today!  Thank you for coming by!  I really appreciate all the comments.  

Hugs, Dena
