Beautiful Bildmalarna and Exciting News

Howdy Everyone

I hope you are all well and are having a good week.

I have some awesome news to share with you all .....

I have only been asked to be a Guest Designer for the one and only Bildmalarna!  OMG I can't believe it, I keep having to pinch myself - little ol' me guest designing for Bildmalarna - whoop whoop!  Just amazing.   I am truly grateful and honoured to be working alongside such a talented design team.

So without further ado I would like to share with you one of their new releases called "Little Winged Friends - Scarf" - oh my ain't she just so so pretty.  You so need to check out their new range of stamps and papers they are truly amazing.

For absolutely tons and tons of inspiration, make sure you check out the Bildmalarna Blog HERE

Here is the full card I have made:

The recipe for the card is as follows:

Papers:  Frosty Christmas - Christmas Day
Paper Ribbon:  Frosty Christmas - Cut-Out
Sentiment Stamp:  Merry Christmas with a Flower
Bazzill Kraft Card:  Dies to Die For
Poinsettia Punches:  Nellie Snellen Floral Punch - Xmas Rose
Mulberry Poinsettias:  The Hobby House
Spacers:  The Hobby House - Starburst Spacers
Rhinestone Brads:  The Hobby House
Self-Adhesive Rhinestones:  The Hobby House

I have coloured the image with Copics, Promarker and Flexmarker as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (Cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Jacket:  Satin (Promarker)  Antique White (Flexmarker)
Dress:  B000 BG000 BG0000
Scarf:  R39 R29 R27 R24 / Satin (Promarker) Antique White (Flexmarker)
Boots:  E31 E30 E000
Poinsettias:  R39 R29 R27 R24 / YR23 YR21 YR20 / G29 G49 G24 (Stems)
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I used a little French Grey 50% and French Grey 70% Prismacolour Pencils for shading on the image
I have outlined the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink
All the papers have been edged with Gathered Twigs Distress Inks

I have used German Glass Glitter on the poinsettia's which you can get from The Hobby House here

And that's it.  Thank you so much for taking the time to have a little look at my card.

I will be back tomorrow with another post - phew, what a busy week I've had!

Take care
