Tis the Season

I am so loving this holiday season.
I'm not sure what is different but I just have more of a calm about me.
With three little peeps and a busy husband, I should be frantic. lol.
Maybe it's the sweet seasons images from Make it Crafty.
I have several of them that I've been playing with.
This is the first I've gotten onto a card.

Spring is in the Air

Not really. Fall is here and I've already thoughts of Spring.
So, I played with this gorgeous chipboard piece from SRTC
and colored up an image by Little Miss Muffet Stamps
that's been calling to me for a while.
The trellis is piece GAR-284
and image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps "Stolen Kiss"
Michele R Designs paper in Rose Cottage Charms 8
Colored in Copics
V99, 09, 06, 04, 01
E15, Y38, Y35
T9, 7, 5,3
B01. 000
Using Acrylic paint, I've painted up the chipboard. I got a bit messy and
used some copics to help out.
 I then created a box so that the image sits inside,
The trellis surrounds creating a nice frame for the image.
 I've sprayed a white beaded lace with my Copic Airbrush to match and glued it around the edge.

Can you color an image in 15 minutes?

That's right, our challenge this month is to color an image in 15 minutes...or less ha ha.
Well, I am a slow, maticulous little critter and this was a tough one.
I guess they all are a little tough. That's the point of a challenge huh?
I tried a few different images to see how I'd do but
The first image I choose to try to do is actually the one I went with in the end.
Lil Red Nose Roo kept calling me back.
I colored him up in my copics  
and placed him onto one of the new CC Designs DieZyne Dies by Rhea
This is the Side Step Card
