Let it Snow

I was fiddling with the camera to try and get a decent picture of this card .. .. and in the end gave up! The close up of Sylvia's new digi Let it Snow image isn't too bad, although the colours are looking a little washed out. I coloured with my Copic pens and finished that part of the card over a week ago, but it has taken me until now to finish putting it all together .. ..

Now this is definitely the wrong colour, the blues are looking rather grey when they are actually quite bright, and the contrast peachy-red is too orange - bu****r! The papers are scraps from my stash and I've added faux stitching around the edge. There's lots of sparkle on this card but as I ran out of Stardust Stickles, I've had to resort to wet glue and loose glitter - now everything in the room sparkles! The embellishment in the corner is created with Nellie's Choice punch and emboss poinsettias layered up over a double white organza bow and little pieces of Marianne diecut fronds and leaves.

It's an anything Christmassy goes challenge on the ABC Christmas blog, and also on the Paper Sundaes blog too. Totally Gorjuss have a Let it Snow challenge, and the Digital Tuesday theme is for a Winter Wonderland.

Now if the glue would just dry I'll have another card to share with you tomorrow, but for now I have tiles to grout .. .. ..

  8. I love that Poinsetttia layered over the organza - at first I thought it was vellum. I always like the way you colour little animals - they end up with character. She's got a lovely little outfit the way you have coloured the various elements of it.
    Hope the grouting is now done - I'm catching up with commenting.
