Kenny K - #73 Blue Christmas - Ice Maiden






















Theme at Kenny K - Christmas blues
Sponsors & prizes this week -
Michelle's Scrapbooking Store ($15 gift certificate) plus
Kenny K Downloads - (5 digis of your choice)

I have gone for very subtle, icy blues for the background papers with deeper shades for the Promarkers colouring my image this week, one of Kenny K Steampunk galz called ' Helga Frost'. She with the pout & hynotic eyes (or should that be 'eye' given that she has this Veronica Lake thing going on with her curling locks), is just so brilliant to colour - but there again, I just lurve to colour!  LOL. Don't you reckon she makes a great enchantress, a latter day Snow Queen ready to capture an unwary male & take him to her Ice Palace?

The larger snowflakes behind the image's mat are die cuts created using a Marianne Creatables set of dies and the slightly smaller ones running in a straight line were cut using a Martha Stewart punch.  Some have been spritzed with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle while others have been cut from matching printed paper and pearlescent card.  The circular sentiment was from Sentiments4You and has been set in front a snowflake constructed from die cuts & very narrow ribbon.  I have given this a longish 'tail' of wider satin ribbon, pleated into folds so the overall effect is rather like a snowflake rosette.

She is one sassy ice maiden!
