It's Tuesday and we're back - this week with a sketch by the delightful Tams! This is one great layout; hope you'll check it out at the TLT Challenge Blog and then play along. We LOVE seeing what you create!
My daughter needed a thank you card for some friends that loaned her ski clothing so she could go skiing over Spring Break. They had EVERYTHING she needed; we didn't have to buy a thing. Can't beat that, so I really wanted to make a special card for them.
Hence, it's April and I'm using Nikkie and Buttercup Snow Angels. :D Yeah...you can't see Buttercup - DON'T.EVEN.GO.THERE...my boss is going to be ALL over it...trust me! HA HA She likes to get her whip out...and I like to give her reasons to get it out. LOL
Seriously, is this image not just perfect? I paper pieced Nikki's coat and scarf and added black enamel dots for the buttons on her coat. I wanted to add Flower Soft as the fur around her coat and hat...but accidentally grabbed some embossing powder and dumped it on before I realized my error. OOPS! I added some fluffy stuff for the snow.
I edged all the DP with PTI's Chamomile Tea Dye ink; love how it gives the paper an aged look (much like me...aged!!). I also added white enamel dots to the scallops and some red gems around the left side of the circle per the sketch.
Again, hop over to the blog to see all the amazing creations and then play along - always a great prize to be won!
Have a great week; hugs, ~M.
