Delicious Doodles Challenge

Over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge this week the topic is "something that flies".  I have used a Delicious Doodles image called "Holly Fairy" and coloured in with Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and added a cloud background with Pan Pastels and a piece of card torn with a wavy tearing ruler.  The backing papers I was given so I am ensure as to where they have come from.  The card has been finished off with some holly acetate I was given (I am not sure if this is by Dawn Bibby), poinsettias, ribbon, gold ribbon bow, brads, red pearls and a sentiment which was a freebie in a magazine last year.  My apologies for the poor photo - it took over 20 to get this one due to the acetate!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Delicious Doodles - Something that flies
Papertake Weekly - Ribbons and pearls
Whimsy Stamps - Use traditional Christmas colours
Inky Impressions - Make it girly
Delightful Sketches - Red and green
Christmas Card Throwdown - Pearls
Crazy 4 Challenge - Put a bow on it
Top Tip Tuesday - Kids and teens - I am entering this for a TOP TIP as well.  We all like to use torn paper and use either with distress inks, chalks, Pan Pastels etc to make clouds/hills but if you are like me sometimes it won't tear just where you want it to and the clouds/hills look a mess.  I tried using a tearing ruler I've had for some years with small waves and large waves.  The small waves are perfect for smaller images needing clouds/hills where the large wave is perfect for larger images needing clouds/hills.

Very pretty card and a great tip. I hate tearing the papers as I always make a mess and I like it neat, so this is a great tip for me!
