My first twisted easel card,and a baby card

Hi guys,
Well its wet and miserable here,today so perfect for crafting,watching MS crafting at the moment on QVC. I have been up since,6am,and got most of the dreaded H done.
I Have made my first twisted Easel card,and also had a play with this gorgoues,cute baby,which is too celebrate,the birth of Eiglas,grandson Toby she is having a challenge so please pop over,and see what its all about,the image is drawn by Eiglas,herself,and its on her blog if you care to use it.

These papers are just lush they are SU and you can get a brilliant selection from dear JO here link is HERE and I have also a link on my side bar.  I just love these papers,they are so bright,and all work so beautifully together. Images is colored with my pencils,EK punch,adhesive stones,Kanban sentiment flowers,and made a pocket,with a tag that comes out and says happy birthday.
I have tried,to blend,different colors to create,the moon,not sure if it works, but had a go.
Now for my baby again the papers are SU,the image is from,eiglas, colored with pencils just added some ribbon,kept this simple, as wanted to make the card,concentrate on the image.  How cute is he,Eiglas is so talented, the Sentiment,is Kanban.

Once again I have tried,blending several,colors togther,in the hair,for eg. love to know what you think.

Eiglas said...

Wow Cheryl! How absolutely arty! Never mind a card, you could hang the card with my Baby Toby image on the wall in an art gallery - it wouldn't look out of place!
I think you've found your niche Hunni - I would never have chosen those vibrant colours for a baby image and it just shows how ignorant I am!
Your overtinting of the lines of the baby's top is really artistic!
Great work Hunni!
