joy to you and me
I had the chance last weekend to create a card to play along with the current Lili of the Valley challenge which is Glitter and Glitz. I have so many cute Christmas images from LOTV that I have not had a chance to use yet so this was a perfect challenge! I pulled out this adorable Igloo for Two image. This is one of my favorite images from LOTV! I love those cute little penguins!
I used some pretty patterned papers from October Afternoon's Good Cheer line (not a new line, but new to me). I also used some marashino red baker's twine from my etsy shop and some green buttons.
I colored my image with copic markers. These are the colors I used:
penguins: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, Y35, Y38, YR12
igloo: C1, C2
sled: E31, E33
presents: B00, B01, YG13, YG17, YG67, R27, R37, R89, R30, R32, R35
After coloring my image, I added lots of stitching and some twinklets (finely ground glass) to the snowflake I had punched and to my image. The sentiment is another one from Catslife Press.
Have a great day!
