Christmas Wishes

Good morning and a happy Thursday to all! Today I have a Christmas card (yes, I'm frantically trying to get those done too!). This is "lantern girl" from Whiff of Joy. I just love the flow of her dress in this image. It would great to paper piece too, but I haven't attempted that technique quite yet. I colored her with my prisma's. Honestly I only have the small bos so I have to use my crayola and rose art too. They don't blend as nicely but they're gettin the job done in a pinch. They helped on this image anyway. I added a touch of glossy accents to her lantern. I found some snowflake eyelets which I added a touch of Pearl Pen to the middles. I used papers from my Swirly Kit and dristressed all the edges. I put a touch of lace for some softness and added a cream prima flower.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my creation!

I have tried the Crayola pencil thing with goo be gone and the stump (saw that on a website where they compared the Prisma pencils with the Crayola) theirs looked amazing but mine looked like...well, let's not talk about it ;D.
