Magnolia - Let it snow!



Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend! I have a little snowy Magnolia scene card to show today using the sweet Magnolia Skaters from the 2009 New Year Collection and Ice Tilda from the 2011 Sweet Christmas collection. Everything is coloured with pencils and the card base is stamped with the snowflakes from the current Sweet Christmas collection in white and Vintage Photo Distress ink. Everything is edged with vintage photo and white gel pen dots then I added lots of pearl pen dots and stickles stardust glitter glue for sparkle in the trees and on the ice.

I'm entering my card into MDUC where the challenge is 'let it snow'
Stamptacular Sunday with a theme of  'anything Christmas'
Totally Gorjuss and a challenge of 'sparkle'

Exquisite work Chris, how many hours does it take to colour something like this? Btw all of your recent posts that I didn't get in my reader have all just poured in at once, they must have been lost in blogosphere or something!

Such a lovely winter scene you have created here Chris! The "snow" looks so real! Great choice of images for this scene and wonderful job with the Pearl pen dots all over! Of course, your coloring always impresses me. Believe me, I've tried and tried to color with my Prismacolor pencils but I just can't do it right LOL!
