Magical mystical theme!


 I spent ages on my colouring of the image and used a photo of this image as my guide coloured by the lovely Crissy Armstrong who is one amazingly talented lady! Don't think I did too badly:)

Our theme this week at Crafts4Eternity is MAGICAL MYSTICAL. I know to most people that probably says fairies or Halloween type cards but if I see another Halloween theme I will scream! Who sends Halloween cards? I know I don't and never will. Nearly every challenge in blog land is Halloween at the minute:( Rant is over now:)  So the stubborn streak in me took over and I went with a Christmas angel them, well that is magical and mystical...isn't it?
We are sponsored this week by 
Thanks so much Beth!!

For my card I used
Image - Whimsey stamp
Papers - from Crafty Emma's shop, mirrir card, red foil card
A very old die cut shape (sizziz like) for the frame from qvc
Embellishments - ribbon from crafty Ribbons, metal flower and brad, red gems, embossing folder, glitter
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers (used Crissy's coloured image as a guide)

I'm with you there Pinky, I have 1 friend who is a Halloween fan but that's it. I think it is more an American thing. I'm fed up with reading challenge - Halloween, how unoriginal can you get! (Rant over) Your card is lovely and I can see how hard you worked on that colouring. Her hair and dress are gorgeous. I love long dress images but they are not easy to colour. Fab card. Have a lovely weekend. Marianne x

Magical Mystical means fairies and dragons and wizards to me. Don't think I've ever made far less sent a Halloween card and am a bit of a 'Bah Humbugger!' when it comes to answering the door to all those weird and wonderful beings who trawl the streets looking for sweeties and money. However there are lots of magical, mystical things happening at Christmas and your pretty angel is beautiful. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Luv'n'Stuff
