52 card, week one.

Happy New Year everyone!
I have been sadly lacking in the blog department recently, but hope that the new year will bring fresh vigour and inspiration.
I am joining in with a 52 card challenge on a group led by Chris Cresswell and here is my first card.
I don't usually choose to work so small, so, I am somewhat out of my comfort zone, but, that is good.

I began by covering my card with a selection of neutral fragile papers and washed over them with sepia ink and a baby wipe.
Next, I added some Grungepaste circles and coloured them with Black Knight infusions. 
I rubbed over the circles with treasure gold and "Frantaged" the edges of the card with Heat embossed powders.
To finish, some gold lace , a couple of characters from TH Christmas art dolls, which I coloured with portfolio pastels, and words from Chitchat. 
only 51 more to create!
I would like to enter this into the PaperArtsy ATC challenge. 


  1. Adorable. Love the depth and awesome colors.

  2. It's a beauty Hazel, love how the background contrasts with the child's coat. ATC's great spaces to create in miniature..

  8. I find this size really difficult... I don't know how you managed to fit all that in! Nice to see you back on blogland Hazel. xx

  9. That's really charming - lovely gilded touches to your tiny masterpiece... and I hope the New Year will be full of small things if this is how marvellous they are. A great beginning to the year. (Do you see what a I did there?!)
