Gingersnap Creations challenge Resolutions

This is for the challenge at Gingersnap Creations 'Resolutions' It fits in because I 'think' about them but, like most people, they don't seem to get much further than the 6th of January! It's a stamped image with a touch of watercolour, she has a nice sparkle finish on her wings, but the camera hasn't picked that up. A Prima flower and a brad have been added, the background stamp is from Crafty Individuals, I use that one a lot.
Happy Christmas to all, hope you have a great day x

Mixed Media Monday Challenge 'Frosty'

These are for the challenge 'Frosty'. I love the I've used it twice. The image is from a vintage magazine cover, decoupaged and her fur is highlighted with glitter and a snow pen, which gives a 3d snow effect, that's fun to use. She has tiny accent beads and rhinestones in her hair and more accent beads around the edge of the ATC, on the first I've used flower soft polar white, though it doesn't show very well in the pic
