Wanna Be Just Like....

SO, made this card earlier in the week for "I wanna be like Lisa" challenge over at Club Anya and put it in the Greeting Farm Gallery, but thought you would like more details and pictures...

We followed Lisa's wonderful card design and I may have been a little experimental... as you can see... I have stamped Miss Snow Anya directly onto kraft card. Coloured with copic markers, you'd be amazed how well the colour goes on. Try testing on a scrap as the colour changes slightly compared to on a white base.

This would probably be one time when you could have done with the white ink not being so dense. I simply stamped the polka dots directly onto the coloured image with the nesty die in place to create a frame. Then with a little masking and using a finger dabber, the background snow came together very well!

If you click on the close up you can just make out some sparkle on her hair because I wanted to show where the snow has fallen and melted. Doesn't she look so cosy in those gorgeous boots and outfit!

Do you think she's waiting for it to freeze to do a little skating? *smile*
