Chocolate Baroque - Challenge #5

Hello my dear blog friends, I hope you are doing well.

I have a Christmas design today for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge - #5.


The background is a piece of Basic Grey designer paper from my stash.  I like using the solid colours to stamp over and then colour with my Prisma pencils.    This one took some time, but it's very relaxing, I enjoy it very much.    The background is one of the fabulous Big Bold Backgrounds - Snowflake Outline.  The angel image is from the  Gothic Angels set, I coloured her with Inktense pencils and added lots of stickles to her wings.

And below is the challenge inspiration photo.  We would love it if you could join us for a chance to win a £15 gift voucher at Chocolate Baroque.

This is a card design by me using the same techniques, you may have seen my post in January 2014
Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

This is gorgeous Shirley and love the snowflakes on the pink paper and that pretty angel topper. All the colouring is beautiful too and the stickles for sparkle. I too find the colouring relaxing and you can forget about everything else and time just flies by. x

Your colouring is so beautiful, choice of colours and shadings, and I like the way you have placed the ribbon, quite an unusual touch.
I followed your links, but remembered to come back this time!
