Warmest Wishes


Hello everyone! How are you all ? Oh, I have had a busy weekend and have missed popping round to see all your lovely creations. I hope to do some blog hopping today to catch up.

Today is another day where Janny, Dena and myself will share a card we have each made using the same image. We decided this week to use one of Mo's fabulous digital images. After some deliberating on which one to use we plumped with Noelle Bearing Gifts.

This is such a beautiful image but it stretched me on my colouring skills! This was attempt no.2. Number 1 ended in the bin.....the colours just didn't look right together! I am happier with this attempt.


The papers are all from SU 'Ski Slope' series. The snowflakes are made with Spellbiners dies and I borrowed a tip from my friend Kathy. I added white acrylic paint to the tips of the snowflakes just like she has done on some of her cards. Finally, the tag is made fom stamping a magnolis script stamp and then it is inked with 'Tea dye' for the aged look.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have time to check out what Janny and Dena have done with the image.

My first ever Sugar Nellie DT kit laned on my doormat this weekend, so I hope to have my 1st ever DT card to show you tomorrow. Yippee!

bye for now,

Judy x

Judy, OMG we used the same colors!!! I loooove your use of the music sheet! What aa fabulous idea. Also adding the white on the tips is a great idea for the snowflakes. Your coloring is fab. I was thinking of doing her in blue too. Love this to bits. Can't wait to see what you do with the SN stuff! Hugs, Dena

Anjou Krelovich said...

Just stunning! I love Mo's images and you've captured it perfectly!

W McCallum said...

Brilliant Judy. How do you manage to colour the images without smudging the computer ink with you pens? Is it the quality of pens you have. I have tried to use Dovecraft marker pens and the ink on digital images smudges and looks awful! Any tips?
