A small gift for a special Friend

Each Christmastime I receive one or two christmas cards that really inspire me, and I now have quite a collection.  This particular little fabric and stitched quilt was inspired by such  a card I received several years ago, and reminds me somewhat of Zentangles.  The design appears to be hand drawn, and filled in with amazing detail, down to drawn lace and small embroidery lazy daisy stitches.  Anyway, my friend Alis was delighted with her little gift, and I would like to share the quilt wth all my blogging friends, to bring you all
Christmas Tidings. 

Here is the inspiration.  Unfortunately I do not know the artist, to be able to give credit where it is due.  I do hope you all have a lovely Christmas, and a very happy, healthy and creative New Year.

Fairy is finished .....

Following on from my last post, this is a scan of the painting actually, so it is a little larger than shown here - there is quite a few more leaves on the bottom and it is a bit wider. It is all water colour, except for the green background, which is layered acrylics.

This is also a scan of the finished Angel I posted some time back - now has a dark background, again using acrylics.
Bye for now ......
