A little bit hard to take photo of this project because there is a reflection of myself :P.
Most of the papers that i used are from october afternoon the latest series-modern homemaker and a little bit the old series like farm fresh. The background--musical note is from cosmo cricket christmas edition (last year i guess ) :) most of the edges from the images are distrees with scattered straw distress ink!totally essential item for me..

Layers of punched papers to create the rooftop. birdie on branch are from hero art stamp as well as the topiary.

The small boy is from october afternoon stamp-summer series. the houses are from hero arts stamp.
i coloured the house use sharpie markers.

Clouds and kite are from october afternoon stamps-summer collection

I coloured the image use crayola crayon and blend it use baby oil. I just simply love this adorable kids..
The paper is from imaginisce and flowers from wild orchird card

And here are the crayons that i used to colour the image.
I did apply the crayon twice as the first apply it will tend to give the very light result.

Dont forget as well the Belle and Whistle challenge is still going on!

And i am so happy that my order from Simon Says stamps has arrived..however!

There are some dent on the paper  

Some crack on my ink pad

my very first monochrome colouring..i dont know whether it is consider successed because my hubby said..the snowman too dark :)
well this snowman is from penny black stamp and i coloured used brushed curduroy and vintage photo distress ink.

i use tag and distress it use brushed curduroy. the sentiment from hero art stamp-cl463 get merry and i emboss it with white embossing powder. You will realize that i keep using the same stamp set.For myself i would recommend you to buy this set!
The ribbon is actually seam binding that i colour it by myself use adirondack colorwash.

and here is the inside of the card :
Left over paper can be used for the inside deco like what i did.
sentiment is from the same stamp set that i use as well as for the tree.
The trees are stamped on to the  sticky back canvas and sprayed use ranger mist.i learned it from thinking inking website by jennifer mcguire! she is so awesome! she taught me so many things till i have to bring my notebook to note down everything :). love her!

Good Morning crafter! i am back with more xmas card with totally non traditional colour!
like i mention in the previous post..the reason why i choose this sun burst and teal colour are because of the country season in my home now..it is stinkin hot!

Some close up
I have been thinking to buy spellbinder nestie the rectangle scallop series...however i found it that it is very pricey plus currently i am not working.so i came up with this idea.i use 1/2 " circle puncher to punched several solid cardstock and arrange it behind the rectangle frame.voila! you get scallop edges!
i also did not want to waste the negative side of the punched paper~~so that i used it for masking anc create snowflake behind the snowman.

and here is the inside page of the card
