Hi – I hope the weather is being kind wherever you are.
I was going to make this card in shades of blue. However when I sat down to colour the image – Beautiful Skier from the Paper Shelter – I picked up a new turquoise Promarker, and I changed my ideas completely. I bought that Promarker when we went to Limoges on Monday, and I also bought the ribbon I have used – but at the time I didn’t intend to use them together – they just happened to be a good match. I also used a die from Wild Rose Studio – Snowflake Corner – which is part of my new stash. The extra snowflakes are cut from the same die and they all have Aleene’s Glitter Snow and Glamour Dust added to them.
I always think this skier looks so elegant. Oh, to be younger – and slimmer – don’t think I’ve ever achieved elegant though!!
What I used –
Digi image – Beautiful Skier – from the Paper Shelter – coloured with Promarkers
Papers from Nitwits
Die – Wild Rose Snowflake Corner
Lace and ribbon from my stash Pearls from the Ribbon Girl
