I'VE GOT THE BLUES

This image is from the Victoria Case for SCACD Winter Wonderland - it is called SNOW FUN
Good Morning,

Our challenge this week was "I've Got the Blues". This DP is from CTMH. I love this image and this was a good time for me to use it. Doesn't it make you want to go and play in the snow? We don't really get snow in Central Texas, but I wouldn't mind getting just one really nice one to make a snowman. The image is heat embossed and colored with Copics. The snow on the snowman is Polar White Flower Soft with Doodlebug glitter added. I have made a lot of cards using the FS and this stuff goes a long way. For the accent on her boots, her hat, the heart on the stick, and the holly on the snowman's hat I used a Spica pen. I made the snowflakes with MS punches, added stickles and a rhinestone and popped them up. There is also stickles on the snowman's scarf and trim on his hat. To finish it off I added the ribbon. I have never made a
monochromatic card so this is another first for me.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday = 4 seasons - the card I made is winter
Charisma Cardz - Merry and Bright
Cute Card Thursday - Glitter Me Silly - you all know how I like glitz and glitter
Frosted Designs - Bling it On
Crafty Creations - Snow
Colour Create - Blue, silver and white
Creative Inspirations Wednesday - Sparkle
Three Clovers Designs - Christmas Card - no red, green or white


The inside again is pretty simple. If you have the right DP, it makes it easier. I love the trees against the navy background. Again, I punched out the snowflakes, added stickles and a rhinestone to carry the theme to the inside. I sponged two different blue inks from SU around the edges of the white writing area. If I leave it just white, it seems to plain to me.

Please visit the other DT blogs here and check out their projects. They are super terrific.

Thank you for stopping by.
