PaperArtsy Day 4...oooo its my turn!

Day four on PaperArtsy's 12 Days of Christmas.
Its my first appearance on the 12 Days and for this I had a party invitation plate to work with.

PaperArtsy are also stocking the Croco Crackling Colour and so I HAD to try that out!

First of all I stamped out the little character onto white card and drew a pair of legs to match :0)and lay it onto a covered circular beermat (thanks Joanne for the beermat stash)




Brushed bronze Croco Crackle over red card.



Once dry decided to use a circular card (I use the die remain to figure out where to cut out)








Coloured and played around a bit with the composition.



Matt and layered, added a few extras ...





and Da-Daaaaaaaaa!








Also again today is Julie and Joanne, so don't forget to check out their ideas too and leave a comment on the PaperArtsy blog to be in with a chance of winning the free plates.
