#96 Blue & White

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - blue & white
Sponsor & prize this week - Crafty Emma - a £10 voucher!

Whilst not exactly CAS this one is heading that way - and this particular ice maiden is nothing like the one on the last card I posted.  This one is serene as she gazes at the falling (blue) snow of the dp and is an image from Beccy's Place called 'Mum's Coat'.  For the said coat, I paper pieced with a swirling blue design from FSS, & and like the image itself, has of course, been coloured using Promarkers, though the odd Flexmarker did sneak in today. You might notice too, that I was a bit creative with my Spellbinders die on the image as not only was my ideal size not included in the Nestie range but I was also awkward enough to only want the shaped cut on two of the corners.  To get around this I cut the image's mat to the rectangular dimension I wanted and then sneaked it onto the die, taping into position so one corner would be cut.  I then carefully ran it through the die cutting machine making sure I only went part-way over the die, before taking the image out of the Nestability & repeating for the second corner.

There is no sparkle on her fur, though it almost looks that way.

The snowflakes falling outside her window (well it is a window in my head! LOL), are a re-coloured digi from Crafter's Companion to which I added Waterfall Stickles for an blue-icy look. As you can see, as my imaginary ice maiden lives in a castle built of ice, it is apparently snowing inside too! LOL. This is a combination of not only the smallest of my Marianne Creatable dies, but Martha Stewart punches too in pale blue, navy, white & pearlescent shimmer card stock which hopefully shows up all the more against the pure white textured card base. The odd section of snowflake as also been spritzed with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle for that extra bit of reflected light.

Happy Christmas crafting!
