Winter Blues

Over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up it is the Merry Maidens turn to showcase some fabulous Christmas cards.

The optional Twist for this challenge is "Winter Blues" inspired by the prize paper pack on offer for the winner Winter Blues 1 designed by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

This month we are sponsored by Sheepski Designs who have a fabulous range of images in their store including some lovely Christmas ones.

I chose Snow Happy image 59 to work with from the store. 

The image is coloured with Promarkers and lots and lots of glitter courtesy of a clear sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir by Crafter's Companion.

As I don't have access to a colour printer at the moment I have scanned in the image and used it to make a digital card.

I use a program called Affinity Photo on the Mac and created a square card. The base layer is just plain navy blue. The snowflake paper is snowfall from the Welcome to the North Pole kit by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

I have added triangle corners in the plain blue and snowflakes from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles

The image has been added to a panel of blue that has been rotated. I then added a 'frame' of snowflakes around the edge of the snowangel. This card has 24 layers plus the signature and is the most complicated of all digital creations I have produced.

I do hope you will take part in our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.

Digital Supplies Used :  

Coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen
Embellishment - Glitter Snowflake 1 from Snow Much Fun - Decosse's Dynamite Doodles
