Be Jolly

  Last card of the weekend and the only one I have time to post now.

This was just so I could play around with the stamps, I decided to stack them so a bit of masking before adding each but my mouse for some reason ended up looking like he's jumping for joy or maybe planning to do a pirouette.
Stamped on watercolour paper and watercolored with Peerless watercolours. After the paint had dried I added Wink of Stella but as usual very hard if not impossible to catch in the night light. Trust me hats eyes and belly's all look wonderful and sparkly. Added a die cut star to the top of my animal tree and a few silver embossed decorations.
I added a lovely silver die cut 'Joy' but the glue smeared and I just made it worse so in the end it was better to cut a die tag and stamp a sentiment small enough to fit, that being 'be jolly' which I reckon these guys were before they decided to stand on each others heads. Added a wonderful red gem to finish it off.

got it in in plenty of time (8 hrs - so getting better!!)

I loved the picture and have done two cards. This is the first, where I got the inspiration from the cluster of animals and the Christmas Tree. Freestyle.

Last but certainly not least is at 
Couldn't be any more magic than my wonderful critters all piled up and decorated for Christmas. Didn't make it in time........silly billy.

Thanks for coming to look and hope you visit again soon.
