I had an unexpected afternoon of crafting today! always good!! There are a lot of challenges this week with Snow as a theme So I thought it was about time that I inked this little lady up!!.. all the papers are from my scrap box, so I have no idea of what they are sorry!! I have coloured her using a combo of copics and whispers pens. I wanted to make the fur on her coat, and the snow different textures, so on her coat I used puff paint, which I heated with a heat gun, and added glitter while it was still hot. Then for the snow I have used flower soft, this is only my 2nd attempt at using flower soft and I still haven't quite got the hang of it, I would have preferred the snow flakes to be more delicate, instead of it looking like she was standing in a blizzard!! Finally I added some double sides peeloff swirls, and put a little pink glitter on it to add a bit of extra sparkle!!
Unfortunately bad lighting has caused problems with the whole photography thing!! I tried to flood the card with light, using my little daylight table top thing I have. It has helped a little but not much. I quite like the way it has turned out, but you should see the state of me!! I am covered in white fluff and glitter!! Major clean up Op now required!!
