Hi there, I'm finally feeling better after hurting my back so hopefully I'll be able to get the rest of my Christmas shopping organised tomorrow. Its been sooooooo cold here, i've never known a winter like it. Last night the temperature was -18 degrees!!! I thought this gorgeous image was perfect for this time of year, its 'Winter' from Michelle Perkett (you can find her here in Michelle's store). Unfortunately I don't look quite this glamourous in the cold (a red nose and bobble hat isn't going to start a new trend lol)
I coloured 'Winter' with promarkers and then embossed with icicles on her hair with clear sparkle EP and added lots of different colours stickles. It was a bit of a pest to do as I had to do one colour and let it dry before the next as i wanted to keep the colours separate. I'm really pleased with the effect though, in real life it is sooooooo sparkly!! I didn't want to add to much in the way of embellies with all the stickles so I added some crushed glass glitter around the image and to the die cut icicle border.
I'm entering Winter in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Cards: Sparkle and Shine
Crazy Challenge: Let it Snow
Paper Playtime: Christmas
One stitch at a time: anything goes
Craft your days away: punches or diecuts
Sew Many Cards: winter
Stampin with the Dragon: make it sparkle
Passion for promarkers: Anything goes mega Christmas challenge
Thanks for visiting today. Jan and her mermaids have a fab new challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studios today, the theme is 'Let it Snow'. If you don't have any of Michelle's images pop over to her groups on CDAC, PCP and SNR and grab one of the gorgeous freebie images!!
We have more snow on the way over the next few days but the nice man from Tesco has just delivered all my food shopping so if we're snowed in over Christmas I can eat chocolate and craft lol.
