Winter Wishes

Happy Tuesday and...
Thanks for stopping by!!

I decided to start entering some blog challenges to brush up on my skills in card making and Copic coloring. My first challenge I'm taking on is with Platinum Scraps; the November Card Sketch challenge. Here's the original sketch...

and here's my take on the original sketch...

I tried some new techniques on this card and I absolutely love the layered look of this card. I used Stampendous White Flock on her muffs and pop dots for the sentiment. I added a little fussy cutting on the holly and colored with Copics. I used a lighter skin tone this time; E35, E13 and E11. You know I like my mocha girls, but I like how this turned out also. She kinda looks likes she's ready for a winter wedding. Oh, by the way this is also a digital image. I'm really starting to dig digis (hahaha). They're very easy to print, don't smudge with the Copics and don't take up ANY additional space in my crafting storage closet. This digital image is called Snow Goddess and she's from the Michelle Perkett collection. You can find her on Etsy.

For my next challenge I think I'll try my hand at a Magnolia. I just bought one from my favorite scrapbook store; Family Memories. I'll post my final project real soon.

Have a creative week and...
Thanks for stopping by. See you next time.


  1. Your card is gorgeous. I love the white flock on her collar and muff. TFS.

  2. The copic coloring and flock on muffs and collar are marvelous.
