Hello, happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend :) Well November is certainly pushing us nicely into winter, can't believe how cold it suddenly has become!
This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the theme is "Winter Scenes with animals or people". Our sponsor this week is Delicious Doodles, kindly giving 4 digi's to the challenge winner.
Here is the card I made for this challenge:
I got the beautiful Angelique to play with :)
I used a mixture of watercolour paints, pro markers and embossing powder to colour in this lady.
I decided to go with a blue and silver look, to portray the ice and snowflakes. I cut out a blue 'doily' with my bigz die, put an outline sticker on it and placed it slightly off the card to the top.
I used some stripy blue paper as the background, and then layered up the centre with ribbon and a silver paper. I used another outline sticker to 'even off' the card.
I printed out Angelique onto a heavier card in my local print shop, but as usual did the wrong size! I had the card in my head and didn't work in the size dies I had. The only die that would fit her, was the largest banners die. I had no way to layer the image, as the smaller banner die cut off too much of the image. So I cut both the silver backing board and image at the same size, and then got my fabric scissors at the image to make it slightly smaller.
As it was a snowflake/icy image, I wanted to try and portray that on the card. I used some Kaleidoscope Transparent embossing powder on her wings, and used a silver embossing powder around the trim of her top. I love how the finish comes up on the wings!
To give the snowflake a bit of depth, I cut out a second one, heat embossed it, placed a gem in the middle and layered it with foam pads.
Thanks for stopping by, why not give the challenge a go?
I hope to enter this card in some challenges.
