Dream On for 2016

Hi Everyone
and I Happy New Year to you where ever you are, hope you've had a good time. I would like to wish you all that you dream for in 2016 and hope this first make of mine for the year supports that thought.

One of my Christmas gifts was a full set of Caran d'ache luminance pencils and they are brilliant, I have coloured the wonderful Prima Finnabair image with them which has then been edged with distress inks.

The background is a piece from my scrap pile that has been hanging around for ages. It was a piece of water colour card that I smeared paint on left over from another project using an old credit card. I then have stamped several of the the sentiment and texture stamps from the Finnabair range using watering can archival ink.
I added some leftover pieces of painted mesh and rusted metal washers to just finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and here's to a fabulous crafty 2016 for all of us

  2. What a glorious start to 2016 - stunning colouring on the image - the most beautiful I've seen it look. The pencils are well named as she really does seem to glow with luminous beauty. Fabulous rusty grungy surroundings - an altogether delicious creation. Hope 2016 will be a great year for you.
