Winter / Christmas

Good morning all ,
thanks for joining me on this Friday morning. 
Today it is the start of a new Fussy and Fancy Challenge.
Our theme is

Winter / Christmas 

Now I know you will have stamps, stencils  etc on your craft desk just waiting for this challenge. 
I know I did, 

Our hostess is the lovely 
Gina, 

Here is what I came up with 


Here is how I created it, 
Well to be honest it sort of created itself, you see I didn’t really have a plan.


I started with a piece of card and some ink,
This really is a great way to just start and then play.
If Mr MoJo takes a holiday , encourage him back with inky play.
It really does work .


After some water splats , I stamped my arch, 
These Lavinia stamps are so fabulous to use and stamp beautifully. 


Next I added a tree , and I wanted to use a different stamp than the normal tree or now feather stamp..


Next came the fairies, the moon and the edges, 
Blend8ng the edges really does help to frame the design 




I do love the way the design just grows, so it was foliage next .
Now at this point , I just thought something didn’t look quite right...
And I couldn’t put my finger on it .
So I trimmed a couple of centimetres of the width,
and yes, that looked so much better . 




Then I added some splats of haematite Inka Gold. 
( don’t put these products away, keep using them ) 




A sentiment and some gems , and walk away 
Sometimes you have to know when to stop...




I am so happy with the way the arch turned out , 


Hope you like it too. 

If you fancy having a look at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog 
you can find it here 


I would love to see what you make , 

I must go , it is our last Groovi Class of the year tomorrow. 
So I have mince pies to bake,,,whoops sorry , to buy.

Take Care everyone 
Have a lovely weekend, 
and enjoy the beginning of December 

Love and hugs
