Snow way it took me all day!!!!

Oh yes it did!!!
Firstly stamped with Staz-On black ink. Stamp is from Uptown
Rubber stamps, I have had this one a few years now so don't
know if it is still available! I then coloured the image with my
W & N watercolour Pencils. Little tip here, I found by colouring
all around the image in a light shade it emphasized the image and
made the snow look more realistic! Another tip - I read somewhere
that by putting little white dots on your images face it
draws the eyes in!!!! whooo get me!!!

For the background I used a silk paper embossed with Merry
Christmas, I water coloured all around the edges of this
and my image to co-ordinate. Punched out heart shapes
in baby blue shimmer card. I found some lovely clear
buttons with the word snow, I threaded these with fine
white raffia and attached them with silicone glue and
placed them on top of the hearts. I drew around a heart
shape (from an aperture card) with a water colour pencil
in the same blue, this made it easier to blend and colour
once I had cut out the shape. Punched out snowflakes
from white glitter card and added to the heart.
Added double foam pads to heart to give it a real lift,
added beautiful satin baby blue ribbon and bow and also
white ric rac ribbon down side. Punched out little stars in
the same baby blue shimmer paper and added little star
gems on top then placed on each corner of image.
This is the finished card, I am really pleased with the result.
Thought I'd show you it in stages. TFL xx
