Cold Hands Warm Heart

Good Morning everyone from a cold and frosty Yorkshire!! it was -2 this morning when I woke up brrrr! thank heavens for central heating lol!! It's Tuesday again so that means it's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly' and we have something a little bit different for you this week. Dawny has still created a lovely sketch for you to follow, but if sketches are not your thing there are now three other choices for you to choose from....

  It's a sketch / take your pick combi

So you can either do the sketch (it's still a sketchie free for all so you can do any) or you can do one of  the following -

Colour challenge - blues and greens excluding skin and hair tones
Technique - masking, using 2 or more stamps
Product - ribbon or lace

You can also combine any / all if you want.

I have gone with just a sketch
Sketch #96

I have changed some of the elements around a little to fit in with what I wanted to do, I have used a lovely image from LOTV called Cold Hands Warm Heart I had such fun colouring this in with my inktense pencils, but went a bit over board with my liquid pearls... it looks like my little snow man and his lady friend are in a snow storm lol!! You can't see on the photo but I used black gems for their eyes and buttons it really stands out in real life.. lots of snow-tex and glamour dust, I was quiet sparkly myself when I had finished lol!!

A lovely Gift Voucher is up for grabs this week from
