Inventory Challenge No. 57, Something with wings

Good morning Friends.
another week has gone by, taking us to our Friday challenge. Today, Christina, our team and I have a lovely theme, something with wings. I have been longing to color Tilda with a little gift since I received her. I love her beautiful braids and a cute angel face. I used the lovely Banquise collection papers,from Harmonie,  a local craft company, that I fell in love with on my last visit to Scrapbook ta vie. I was offered this magnificent hand made snow flake by a dear friend last year for Christmas; I had so much hesitation to alter it, but the white thead was too bold for the greish tone of the paper. So, I died it a little bit, and sprayed it with lotsssss of Glimmer mist. I used a gread deal of stickles for make believe there were frost on the flowers. I colored Tilda with my copics, since I will be writing a little column on Copics, for Scrapbook ta vie. Look closely at Tilda's wings, I used a product called Goosebumps on them. It is made by Tsukineko, and resembles Glossy Accent, but in a spray, it is also shimmery. Here, I did not spray, I used the product with a brush. It is very discreet, but very cute.

Bon vendredi,
Une autre semaine qui a filé et qui nous amène à notre défi amical. Nous avions pour thème "quelque chose avec des ailes", et j'ai choisie Tilda, avec un petit paquet. Ce qu,elle est mignonne avec ses longues tresses. Elle est étampée avec Memento, sur X-press blending card, et est coloriée aux Copics. Lors de ma dernière visite chez Scrapbook ta vie, je suis tombé en amour avec ces papiers d'une compagnie de chez nous: Banquise de Harmonie, les couleurs et les motifis sont tout simplement magnifiques. Derrière Tilda, j'ai placé un flocon de neige brodé; il m'a été offert l'an dernier par une amie très chère. Elle l'a fait elle-même. J,ai beaucoup hésité à le teindre, mais le blanc pur était trop fort pour les gris du papiers, alors je lui ai mis un soupçon de Dusty concord. Remarquez les ailes brillantes  de Tilda, c'est le résultat d'un produit appelé Goosebumps, fabriqué par Tsukineko. Ça ressemble un peu à du glossy accent, mais en spray, et c'est brillant! Cependant, je l'ai étendu avec un pinceau pour les ailes, ça sèche très rapidement: c'est aussi une trouvaille de chez Scapbook ta vie.

I am sorry for the poor qualty of the pictures. It was dark when I finished and I was not ableto get daylight. These shades of lavender and violet are so hard to capture... I am not a very good photographer.
Je suis désolée de la mauvaise qualité des photos, mais il pleuvait et faisait presque noir, je n'ai pu avoir l'éclairage du jour. De plus, je trouve ces couleurs de lavendre et violet difficile à capter.. Je suis très mauvaise photographe.
