Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 135 - Girly

Hello and happy Friday!

 
******** 
  
Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are happy to introduce
our very talented
Guest Designer
Hazel Brown

 
Here's a little about Hazel: 
Hi, I'm Hazel, but most people know me as kbrandy4.
First I would like to thank you for having me as
 a guest designer here at Fussy and Fancy.
I live with my Husband, eldest Son and my fur baby called Biscuit.
I have been crafting for about 10 yrs. 
 I started with a little cardmaking kit and now I have my own craftroom
( Playroom ) full of crafty goodies.
I mostly do card making, but I love to recycle and alter things.
One of my greatest passions is Magnolia stamps.  I just adore inking these cute
images and colouring them with different mediums.
 


 *******

 Hazel has created this beautiful
 card for our
Girly Challenge
 

 
Hazel, This is such a lovely and very
Girly card!  The gorgeous black frilly
die cut really helps to make the pretty
pink pop!
This is such and adorable image and I love
the pretty glitter that you have added
to her pretty slippers and perfume bottle!
The die cut lamp is a brilliant addition
to this particular image and your handmade
flowers are the perfect finishing touch!
Any girl, young or old would love to receive
this fun and lovely card in the mail!
 

 
********

 Your in for a real treat when you visit 
Hazel's blog

kbrandy4's creations
 
to read more about her lovely card and
to see more of her beautiful creations!
I do hope that you can stop by to visit her.

It's been a real pleasure, Hazel
Well done!
Thank you for sharing your
talent with us!

xx Happy crafting xx

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 135 - Girly

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********
 
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented
Céline
Hi, My name is Céline and I live in France near Paris.
 
I enjoy teaching at primary school during the day.

Then, I have been sharing my card making blog with my sister Nathalie
 
(who is also on the Fussy and Fancy DT)
for a little more than 4 years.

I love and enjoy card making.
I really love coloring my stamps or digis, best of all. 

I principally use copic markers
but love to try some other mediums such as
polychromos pencils, Néocolor II or distress Markers.
However, Copics are my very favorite!

My style is principally shabby Chic
with lots of
flowers and lace ... so perfect for
 
Fussy and Fancy team ;)
 
Sometimes I try to make my cards more C&S, like today
 

(It's really hard for me, though! LOL)

hugs
Céline
 
 
 
 
 
The challenge Céline has chosen is:
 
Girly
 
Here is the Beautiful
Girly card
that Céline has created!


Céline
 Wow!  Céline, This card is stunning!
Your colouring is outstanding.  You coloured the
flowers on your image so realistically and the shading on
her skin and lovely hair is beautiful!
You certainly didn't need much for embellishments at
all with the gorgeous floral designer paper that you are using!
The pretty punched lace edging is so dainty and I love that the
fancy sentiment is decorative as well!
The purple hearts that you added make the
perfect finishing touch!


Céline will be choosing the
Top 5 Winners
for this challenge!
