How was your weekend? Pretty calm here for us. Warm...rainy...not very wintery at all. We still have snow but it isn't very pretty anymore...hopefully more will come this week :)
We start a new challenge today at Digi Makeover and it's Winter Wonderland!! With it being so warm, it was kind of hard to find the spirit to make a snow card...but my hubby was quite helpful in that area today. He was full of suggestions and inspiration :) Love that man <3
Cosette from Paper Makeup. My imagination roamed once I saw her. I imagine she's holding a steaming cup of hot chocolate, which helps to warm her hands, and is enjoying a gorgeous walk through the new freshly fallen snow drifts in her backyard. Reminds me of when I was younger and would try to write out messages in the snow for my mom to read from the kitchen window :)
I colored her in with my colored pencils and added stickles to her wings.
The edges are inked with some Copic markers and then distressed with my scissors. I tore the edges of the snowflake paper behind the image to give a little different texture to the card.
The layered "drifts" of snow are edged with stickles. For Christmas I got a variety pack of Pearl Ex so I have been playing around with making shimmer mists. I used one of them to spray the background paper and the snow drifts so that they shimmered. It's really hard to see in the pictures but looks fabulous in person :)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:
