It's Snowing

Hi there everybody.  I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner of a recent challenge over at The Male Room with this card and so I am the Guest Designer for their next challenge with the title It's Snowing.  I have chosen the theme of skiing for my card and I found this digital image to use.  Their is a programme on over here called Ski Sunday, and also our son has got interested in skiing too which is probably what put me in mind to make this the theme of my card.  I don't usually use digital images but not having anything skiing related I found this and I think it works quite well.             


                                                                                                           

                                                                                        
I ran off two of the images and watercoloured one with my Distress Inks using Black Soot, Fired Brick, and Mustard Seed, and fussy cut it out.  I then cut the other image into a square and coloured the sky using Broken China DI.  I then backed this with a piece of black card and then adhered the image itself over the background with some Pinflair Glue Gel to give it some dimension.  I finished by adding a sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and finally added some bits of snow using a Signo White Gel Pen.

Thank you to everyone at The Male Room for choosing my card and I have enjoyed being part of this challenge, so do go and take a look at the wonderful work produced by the DT, and thank you for joining me here today and I hope to see you again soon.
