Hi there, I'm back this fine Monday with a sweet wintery card to share with you. Today starts a brand new challenge over on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog. It's the first challenge of 2012, and our sweet Iris has chosen the theme this week. I love the "Wintery" look, it's always so much fun to color, and create. =)
I used Copics for coloring as distress ink (vintage photo) for some shading. The rose buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts, originally white, I changed the color using a water color Stampin' Up marker to slightly shade the edges, then sprayed with a water mist to blend. I recently saw a card somewhere, and can't think where, but the paper doilies were rolled and tucked behind the image. I just had to try this, and I am definitely going to do this again. I really love the way it turned out.
I am also entering this card into these challenges:
