Hello, Friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. It is good to be back.
So for my first post of 2013, the Magnolia-licious Challenge DT has a new challenge up and it’s Chris’s turn to choose the challenges for January. She has provided a color inspiration of stark tones like off-white, gray, brown, beige and taupe. Other colors can be added but should support the main color theme. Here’s a lovely photo for inspiration from Design Seeds.
I used the adorable “Jingle Belle” from A Christmas Story Collection as a Snow Day theme card.
Belle is colored with Copics and I used my Colorless Blender to give her a Dappled Gray coat. I love the look and how it turned out. My designer papers are from Echo Park and I used blue as my supporting color for a frosty impression. I took a couple lengths of satin ribbon and gathered it on Scor-Tape for my textured snow bank.
I die cut several pine trees and snowflakes with a touch of Glamour Dust for sparkle and texture. My DP panels are machine stitched and I added a Snow Day sentiment from my PC on a Magnolia tag die cut. Then I finished off the card with some flowers and pearls.
Cardstock: American Crafts
Design Paper: Wintertime, Echo Park
Dies: Magnolia, Marianne Designs, Martha Stewart
Glitter: Glamour Dust, DecoArt
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt
I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
