The pink on the lady's arm is not so vivid in person. I tore the paper and distressed it, attached it to a background of dark cranberry and some other alcohol inks (had it sitting in my box for months). Added embellishments and Hero Arts saying.

I didn't realize how small these were - I see some of these and now I think "How did they get all that stuff on this tiny a card?" 1.1 inches by 2.8 inches is a small surface - though not as small as an inchie.

I'm entering a contest - coloring him in was fun again.

I'm entering the contest for Art Creations, which I found looking at Herminekoster's blog. The lady has such a pensive look about her. I fell in love with her.

Another give-away at Chrysti's

You will adore this item - it's a beautiful pewter chair - if you haven't been there, go straight to jail.... by way of "Art by Chrysti". There were 28 comments the last time I visited. You will so enjoy her story behind this particular give-away! Well, I did....

Here’s the rules today:
Tell me how you would artify or alter one these pretty chairs, or otherwise make use of it (I just know some of you are re-gifters!) and if you are a drawing a blank there merely make me feel a smidge saner, and tell me what gives you that silly, not very sensical ‘Oh the Horror!’ feeling. Much like the relationship styrofoam and I have.
Do this by: Monday, December 15th
For every 15 entries/comments we get on this one, I’ll give away a chair. Not shabby eh? Up to 10 of them total. Excited? Spread the word!

I hope that helps in visiting her site. It's great to visit and perhaps win a gift for yourself or a friend you have in mind.

Giveaways at Chrysti's and Pattie's

Chrysti's 29 Days of Giving !
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill.....ArtByChrysti says: I'm starting the First Installment of 29 days of giving - come to my main blog, to read all about it -- win a $100 Gift Certificate, and more! I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it! Visit Christi's to learn about the give-away.

I learned about this on my friend, Pattie's blog. You better check hers out too because there are only two more to go to make ten to enter her contest. You won't believe her beautiful watercolor ATCs.
