A Winters Tale


Well i thought I had finished with Christmas, but I realised I still had some new images never been inked and it is still Winter!  We have more snow here today, and so I was inspired to make this little winter scene, using this gorgeous image from the Lili of The Valley and using their great challenge sketch.

I ripped some pearlescent paper for the snow, used DP from a freebie pad with CM&P, and then punched and punched and die cut all afternoon :)  I coloured using pro-markers and stickles and will be entering this card in the following competitions:

Lili of the Valley - Fab Sketch
Sir Stampalot - A Winters Tale
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas
Paper Sundaes - Circles
Papertake Weekly - Cold and Frosty Morning
DCD Christmas Club - Punch out your sentiment.

Please read post below for my blogoversary candy too! :)

Good luck and thanks for looking

Gorgeous card Alison! I'm Geraldine, from Perth in Australia, married to Phil, who would probably be pushed over a bridge if I ever got close to Richard Armitage! LOL! I feel your love sista!
Seriously though, your card is lovely, LOTV stamps are gorgeous, I am anxiously waiting on a parcel with the new releases in it. Well done!

That snow is very effective - both the pearlescent paper & the Stickles under her feet. In the photo it actually looks like the snow is falling across her coat & I love how you have coloured her coat & scarf. Utterly effective with all the blues & then that splash of green & red on the holly. Lovely seeing you posting so often.
