Giveaway Blog Candy

Woohooo! Today I have some blog candy for one lucky person who leaves me a comment! I will be picking whoever makes me laugh the most so leave me your wittiest comments please (not jokes, that's cheating!).

So it's Sunday and ordinarily that should mean a lie-in but anyone who has cats in the house knows full well that can't happen. Plus I am busy mid-prep on magazine commissions and TV demo's for this week so the OH will be gutted there's no Sunday lunch this week! Hah!

So today's Belles n Whistles lovely is this one, this stamp is called Star of Bethlehem. I adore this image! It barely needs anything doing to it but I had to get a glow from the star onto the girls the best I could whilst still keeping the simlicity of the image. This is coloured with Flexmarkers which enabled me to get the softest possible blending I could achieve. If you've not used Flexmarkers before - HELLO!- where have you been?? They are basically like a Copic marker but personally I find they blend better because they're slightly wetter.
This pic doesnt really do this justice, not sure what happened to my photography this week, it's a bit pants and out of focus for some reason. The dresses are coloured in Antique white and Linen. Papers, poinsettia's and gems are all from the website, papers from Magical Winter CD. The sentiment is also from the CD and has just been set into a Spellbinders Ironwork die-cut. I love how dramatic the poinsettia's are on this card. They could be overpowering but because the colouring is so clean looking it offsets the drama I think.

So make sure you leave me a comment (seriously, it doesnt have to be funny really) and I will choose someone to receive a copy of our Pretty Tuff CD, which is brand brand new and worth £14.99! The winner will be announced in the next few days!

See you tomorrow, hope you're having a relaxing day! x
