If you'd like your own Nora, you can get her at the All That Scraps Store as a digi - like I have - or as rubber. I've shaken it up a bit this time... I've coloured with Prismacolour pencils! - didn't want to go too radical, lol. I added little gems for her earrings, then decided to cut the image out with my Nestabilities Labels Twelve. Of course I didn't even think of the pressure put on the gems, so they've become sort of embedded in the paper! I actually quite like it, they don't look so "stuck on", though they've lost a little of their shine (well, who wouldn't in the circumstances!)
I added red glitter (heat set, of course) to her scarf, but it's not the usual glitter it's sort of long strands... it looks so much like a wooly scarf IRL, I'm rapt. Crafty Calendar has Winter Wardrobe as it's theme this time, so Nora in her coat and her scarf are in there.
I used the sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity this time, I like nice sketches - but you know that :-) Bonus use of the sketch is Christmas Stampin' s theme with is to use a favourite sketch, so I'm in there too. The papers are from Kaisercraft's 'Tis the Season and Basic Grey's Jovial collections, mounted on red card I got in a pack from a newsagent when I was on holiday - it's great, and of course there's nothing like it near home!
The blingy (is there such a word?) ribbon/embellishment came in my budgie-sitting reward pack from my Mum and Dad, the sentiment is a sticker from a sheet of what I think must be (to any non-card makers, at least) envelope seals...there's about thirty in the pack so they'll be available to me for some time, lol. Gold Dew Drops on the corners finish it off. By The Cute and Girly has Christmas Girls as its theme and the Gem of a Challenge theme is Cold and Frosty so I'm entering both of those.
Well that's it for today... I will be back later at 7am CST (which is 9pm my time, which is why it's a bit confusing when I say things like later today, or my second post for today when it may not be the case in your time zone, lol) with a blog hop. So tune in then, in the meantime why not pop over to the All That Scraps Blog and check out my teamies lovely Swiss Pixies - they've been working hard to inspire you! Hope you call back for the hop, until then, Happy Crafting Dee4Donna
