Flourgirl's MSE Challenge Winter Wonderland Sketch

I first came to serious cardmaking as a hobby through MSE where we take it in turns to set the challenge and Karen set us a lovely sketch to use with the sub plot 'Winter Wonderland'. I knew what I wanted to do but events conspired against me to finish it in time. Ah well!

The image came from my SIL & I scanned it to get the right proportions for my card, the marks you can see are the skaters traces which if I use this again I will remove 'cos they now look like dirty marks. The blue snowy paper is Pink Petticoat. For the bottom paper I tried to use glitter card but it looked far too pink! So, I embossed a piece of card with my Cuttlebug dotty folder, sprayed it with spraymount and covered it in glamourdust. I gave the bottom of the image the same treatment to blend. The sentiment is Craftwork cards, ribbon from my stash and the snowflakes are table confetti.

Thank you for looking......

  1. Hi Marg.
    Such a pretty card - the glittery embossed card looks wonderful. I personally wouldn't remove the skater tracks 'cos it gives some perspective to the skaters and without them it would look like they'd dropped into position - maybe from outer space LOL. However you could pretty them up by adding sparkle with a glue pen and glamour dust.
