These two little cuties in their co-ordinating outfits are of course a digi from Mo Manning, ‘Siku & Shiya’. I have coloured them in icy colours to tie in with our theme at I ♥ Promarkers this week which is just that – Icy Colours. Icy colours, other than their little chapped faces, glowing with the cold. All done with Promarkers needless to say, other than touches of silver and white gel pen here and there for the embroidery detail on their costumes.
Now, as we can see, they are ‘Eskimo Kissing’, and as it is a seasonal card, I wanted to add a bit of mistletoe for them as it seemed quite appropriate. As I didn’t seem to have a suitable mistletoe stamp or digi I, as in time-honoured-fashion, ‘did it myself’. LOL. I will pop the image at the bottom of the posting, so if you think you might need a bit of mistletoe for your cards, feel free to click on the image and save to your computer. If you do use it at all, I would appreciate a mention and, and as with all digis, do respect the copyright. Just resize it to suit your project. Other than that have fun with it!
The backing paper is a design from Fred She Said, but I lightened the very back piece so I had a tonal variation. Fab paper though isn’t it, with that swirl blowing across? Just like the Arctic winds howling over the frozen lands. I then added a snowflake overlay to help get across the ‘really cold as ice’ idea and Stickled the edges for even more ‘ice’. You will notice the great restraint I showed as I did not Stickle the fur on the images. I let the ‘ice’ gleam & glisten, not the people. LOL.
Hope you like the result. Happy Crafting!
