Its a Whimsy Thursday with Asian Beauty & Winter Coat

Good Morning my lovelies, how are you all?
What'cha been up too anything exciting? 
Im full of head-cold  so I'm a little more fuzzy 
brained then usual I haven't done a lot of crafting this week.

I would like to share my inspiration pieces for Whimsy Stamps 
Don't for get peeps that our Whimsy Challenge is still up and running 
and the theme is New Beginnings.

I have used the lovely Asian Beauty from Mi Ran from our 
January release and I've used Winter Coat by Artist Jo Davies
of Time For Tea from our December release.
I have a fair few Birthdays to prepare for this month lol

So without further ado 

I coloured Asian Beauty with my Polychromo's I used the Warm Greys 
and Turquoise, i like the contrast but i'm not overly happy with the colouring
it all looks bit rushed. I have used the Butterfly Die in the background
the waste from the die is also the little butterfly thats on the image.

I used my trusty copies to colour this Winter Coat I was
going for a Cashmere look on the coat.

Colours used.
Dress and Boots: R20, 22, 24, 32
Skin YR0000, 000, 00, E11 R20 
Coat: E31, 33, 35, 37, 39, and Sepia Polychromo.
Hair: Y21, 17, E11, 15, 18, and Sepia pencil.

I'm a little bit less is more at the moment I can never get an
even look with lots of embellishments, please excuse the dog hair 
on the corner of the card.
I live in a house where dog hair stick's 
to everything but the dogs lol, Dexter and Pandora have very heavy coats
they have a thick wooly undercoat and a coarse guard hair 
so twice a year every year they blow their coats, so it snows indoor for us :)
Oh the joys of owning Malamutes.

I would like to enter these into the following challenges

Sassy Studio Designs: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge: Real Or Faux Stitching
( Faux Stitching on the background Die)

Have a lovely Thursday my Friends and thank you all
so much for stopping by its means a lot :)
Take care Have fun
