The Snow Queen - TTPH DT

Hi... So glad you dropped by, as there is a new challenge over at TTPH today and due to a few girls being on holiday, I got the chance to do a card with the ladies on team A.... It also means I got the opportunity to work on the stunning Snow Queen by Rick St Dennis who is our sponsor this week...

I love to be challenged and try new ideas and this project certainly ticked all of these boxes... This was quite a different card for me as I used a lot of embellishment around the image...

I coloured her in Promarkes, and cut her out with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen and then nested her on Dark blue card which had been diecut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. I matted the paper onto the same blue card. Then I die cut a flowering Christmas Tree die by Memory Box and some snow flakes in thick white textured card. I cut the tree up to get flowery branches and using a glue pen dabbed randomly on the diecuts.I then used white glitter (my son George calls it "The Devils Dust") as when I've used it it seems to invade the house getting onto everything, randomly making an appearance for weeks after, even though I try to be so careful... I arranged the glittery embellishments around the image and finished off with some liquid peals and a double bow...
