Gemini Twins are Hopping with me today

As it's Tuesday, the Queen Kat Designs Royal Court is running it's regular weekly blog hop.  My DT project is showcased on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog as part of the hop and I like to share it on here with my regular readers.  If you'd like to join in with the hop, go to the start here and just follow the links.  I know the DT members would love to welcome you to their blogs and it would be great if you have time to leave a comment.

I did give you a sneak peek of one of the new December Zodiac Mermaids last week when I used the lovely Taurus. For my project this week I'm bringing you the other new release, Gemini

As soon as I saw these gorgeous Gemini Twins, a retro 80's theme came into my mind for some reason. I knew I had these lovely papers from the DCWV Taj Mahal pack in my stash and they were just perfect for my project.

I coloured the girls with a combination of Copics and Promarkers, adding a little Spica Glitter pen here and there. I added Frosted Lace Stickles on the clouds to give them a 'fluffy' appearance and Glossy Accents on the flower vase on top of the pillar. I created the frame, with a set of Spellbinders nesties, from another sheet of the DCWV paper, and embellished it with flowers cut from a scrap of the background paper. The pretty narrow lime green ribbon I got in Michaels when I was in the US recently and the green card is Stamping Up! Certainly Celery which I had in my stash.

That's all from me today folks, I hope your Christmas preparations are going to plan and that you  are still finding a little 'Me' time in your day to do some of the things you love - such as crafting!!!
