Ice & Snow

Good morning everyone, here is what I've been working on today.  I am entering this into the following challenges

Card recipe: 

White cardstock from crafty stash
Silver mirror card from crafty stash
Tonic fancy rectangle dies
Leaf embossing folder from Sheena Douglass
Memento Sky Blue ink
Tattered Lace blossom dies
Aurora Wings Ice Snow Queen digi image coloured with Copics and Sakura Glaze pens
Faux gems
Hot Foil machine and silver foil

To create this card I ran a sheet of A4 white card through the embossing folder, then scored and folded to make a 15cm by 15cm square card blank.  I added the sky blue ink using a foam pad gently across the leaf pattern to highlight.

Before colouring my image I hot foiled her in silver.  Next I coloured, die cut her and matt and layered onto some silver mirror card before adding to the left hand side of my main card blank using foam tape.

Finally, I die cut some flowers and leaves, adding them down the right hand side of my card using glue gel and stuck some faux gems in the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and I hope you like what I've created.
