Mia in the Snow in Blue & White


I've posted several cards which have been coloured using promarkers recently so this time I thought I'd do something a bit different.

I have stamped Mia in the Snow (Wild Rose Studio) with Faded Jeans distress ink and have 'pulled' some of the colour out using a damp paint brush. I added Sakura Clear Star for the snow and Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Glitter on the furry bits on her clothes. I cut her out using Spellbinders Labels Eight and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans whilst the image was still in the die. I cut a faux nestie and mounted the image.

I cut a piece of gingham paper (from Wild Rose Studio Spring Papers CD) using Labels Eight and again made a faux nestie. I stamped little stars randomly over the gingham paper using a little Lavinia Stamp and Faded Jeans.

The blue border was made using the Martha Stewart Snowflakes PATP set. I added some navy gingham ribbon. The snowflake backing paper is from the Polka Doodles CD Jingle Jangle.

The sentiment is from Creative Expressions and has been cut out using the Spellbinders Double-Ended Tags die and again I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans whilst still in the die. I added a couple of pearls, a bow, a button with a bit of Baker's Twine and I was done.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
Wild Rose Studio Festive Frolics Blog Hop
