Frosty Snowgirl

This is the last card I made at the weekend with one of Kim's new Christmas Snow people digi designs now available at Cuddly Buddly, this is Frosty Snowgirl. I've coloured her with my Copics and stayed with a simple layout - just one piece of digi paper on a scalloped base card and a couple of Marianne diecut snowflakes, glittered of course! I've lost my bit of paper with the colour list of pens I used, but looking at the chart I'm pretty sure I used BG10, 11, 13 and 15 for the minty green then B000, 00, 02 and 05 for the blues. Penguin is coloured with BV20, 23, 25 and 29 with YR20, 23 and 24 for his beak and feet, and her carrot nose. I've added a touch of pink to her cheeks and shaded her with C0. The subtle shading around the image is done with BG0000 and B0000, although it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

This week on My Time to Craft the theme is bird watching - well a penguin is a bird so I'm entering with this card! The Digital Tuesday challenge is called 'spellbound' and at first I thought it was going to be for magical images, but when I read the challenge it's to use your Spellbinders or similar die cuts - so as I have die cut my snowflakes I'll join in their challenge too.

Thank you for your well wishes, I'm sort of taking it easy although my garden is crying out to be weeded and there's lots of dead-heading to do .. .. and as for the housework, well just don't come visiting yet a while!

  6. Hi Annie, Fabulous card and just love this cutie of a 'snowlady'.
    Love this colour combo and those fab snowflakes.

  7. This is super with the softness of the paper & your colouring. That little penguin is especially effective the way you have coloured him. Love your snowflakes & the different shapes to them - they pick up the pattern on her skirt beautifully.
    I know it's not easy to ignore the housework etc....... but sometimes it has to be done.
    Much love
