Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

I had such fun doing this one. I tried to color things differently hence a blue cat and pink fire. It was supposed to be my unique coloring for Sue Daly`s Annual Christmas card contest but in the end I put it inside a frame instead of leaving it as a card. This is the address for the contest: http://www.stampndaly.com/?p=940.

I colored my images using Twinkling H2Os. The stamp shown above is from the Stamp Store and I think its great. I do love lots of detail in a stamp and this one sure has details. I used two shades of pink, pink cloud and playful peony. H2O are great for creating different shades by simply using different amounts of water. The other colors used are: blue ice, Autumn butternut, mystic blue, sweet alfalfa and golden sand.
The other image is sleeping Tilda from Magnolia. She is such a cutie. It always makes me think of the time when my great big teens were willing to let Mom hug them as they went to bed. How times have changed.

I used my oval nestibility to create the BG for Tilda. I used a scrap of pink shimmer paper. As I said this was supposed to be my entry for unique coloring but I decided to frame this instead.

Off to do laundry. Talk later.
