Hello, hello! Welcome to my place. I hope you enjoy your stay.
Today I have a card featuring one of my current favorite images by one of my all-time favorite artists. Winter Fairy Halla is the sweetest thing! I would love to snuggle this cutie!
I colored (....her? him? Two of my oldest children (20ish) were arguing last night about Halla's gender. I suppose I could have solved that argument if I was familiar with the name but I'm not.) with my Prismacolor pencils. There are lots of layers on the clothing let me tell you! Took a while to be happy with it. Not sure why.
I had fun making a mess with the papers. I had it in my head that I wanted to crackle the card stock. So I did. I used crackle medium by Delta and brushed that on. When that had dried enough I covered it with Warm White acrylic paint. Love how this turned out. It's not brittle like I thought it would be. I put scraps of cheesecloth behind my image and the center square. I also added petite, silver-lined clear beads and small snowflake charms. Both were in my stitching stash and both were from Mill Hill. (I sewed all of them on. It's a cleaner look than gluing I think.)
The inside is a bit plain. I did ink the edges of the pink panel and the blue panel is embossed with a snowflake pattern. I put the writing panel in the corner to reflect the sketch from the outside.
I am entering my card I the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge Blog - Lovely layers

I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
