smudged makeup...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...did you see my post last night, its just below, Im still a little giddy from it, I just wish I could get a magazine quickly but it looks like I will have to buy one on the net because my nearest stockist is about 65 miles away...but never mind I will get one to keep in my memories box...we had some fantastic news yesterday, my wonderful Dad went for his eye appointment at the private hospital and apparntly got on so well with the surgeon that he decided to go ahead with the operation...and when is it...next Thursday would you believe, three days after his Birthday...in fact the surgeon said if he had been three appointment earlier he could have had it done tomorrow...I am so so excited for him, he sounded so pleased on the phone it was a huge relief to hear him so positive and upbeat...roll on next Thursday now...right now onto my card for today which is for the digi teams new challenge at Crafts & Me challenge, our new challenge is Things with Wings and our lovely Rose chose this weeks theme...how amazingly beautiful is this image from the new release from Crafts and Me, she is by the wonderfully talented Sara Burrier and is called Midnight Warrior, she is amazing to colour, I used my usual distress inks and glittered her wings, I smudged her make up with the brown from the hair though so she has a bit of brown on her face...the incredible papers are from the Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante range and is called Steampunk Debutante...I love cutting out the elements on paper and this is perfect to do that with...I finished with some 15mm Berisford Small Check Gingam HUNTERS GREEN from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop but I distressed it with Antique Linen distress inks to make it a little darker and a few sticky back pearls, the sentiment is cut from the papers, I also cut one of the beautiful roses to add to it too...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and Im also entering it for the Allsorts challenge too, I was sure there was another challenge but Im sure it will come to me during the day, or I will find it on the floor where it leaked out the hole in the back of my head lol...Im having a crafting day today as I have a few things to catch up with...whatever your up to have a fantastic day and watch out for smedged make up
