It's a New Year -- Celebrate!

     I'm celebrating the New Year with one of my newest images from AuroraWings (Santa brought it to me via a gift certificate. :-D )


     The image is colored with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics, with glitter added to her clothing, wand and wings, and gold paint used on the bell in her left hand.  She's die cut with one of my 'vintage' framing dies from Spellbinders, then mounted onto CS from SU.  I used just a bit of Stickles "Diamond" on the frame and added a small rhinestone swirl for "fireworks," then did the "Celebrate" sentiment by hand.  Very CAS but totally vintage looking.

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create
A Vintage Journey
Fairytale Stampers
Glitter n Sparkle
Graph'It
Outlawz Greeting Cards
Outlawz CAS
Robyn's Fetish
ShowCASe Your Style

     A quick post but something to keep you coming back each day this week while the real me is rather scarce.  Please have a very safe New Year's Eve and no drinking and driving.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Nice job, Connie. Love those gems. Happy New Year to you also. We walk 4 houses down every year. It's a nice quiet neighborhood gathering, but we are still home by 10PM. Old Farts!

Oh Connie, this is wonderful! I love the image and the beautiful idea of using bling as fireworks.

I wish you and yours a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing your creations in 2015.
