Monika made a card - you can see it here - and asked me if I'd like to make one too. Well of course! Can't say no to an adorable image, can I? :)
I love the texture on Monika's card with the embossed background and pop corn pen for snow. She water-coloured the image and created a heartwarming card.
Here's my version - cool, pale and icy! Just imagine there's a warm fire inside and everyone is huddled around the fireplace roasting chestnuts, will you? :)
I coloured the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos. Very lightly I inked the sky with Chipped Sapphire. The greeting is from Waltzing Mouse's Nutcracker Sweet. This set has greetings in major European languages - very versatile. I absolutely LOVE this set. And since Monika lives in Germany, I thought a German greeting would be appropriate. :)
So as not to distract attention from the image, I used very few embellishments: silver cord and a couple of pale green blings.
Here's a closer look at the image. There are little dots of Liquid Pearl Opal White for the falling snow. I've applied Star Dust Stickles and Distress Glitter Rock Candy on the roof. For subtle shimmer, Clear Wink of Stella on the clouds, trees and birds. Didn't stop there! Gold and Silver Wink of Stella on the lamp post.
