I colored the image in with copics and then added lots of stickles to it ~ after all, you have to have glistening snow right? The image was then cut out with my nesties, since I used the largest size to cut the image I had to free cut the outer layer, but in the end it all worked out ok. The edge of the sentiment was colored with RV00 to add a little contrast and then the pearls were colored to match. The snowflakes were covered in stickles and then a little rhinestone was placed in the centers.
Be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team (links on the left hand side of my blog), and see what they came up with.
Well, Winter is officially here ~ on Tuesday it started snowing, and we ended up with a lot of snow, so the kids got their first snow day yesterday and were they excited! They had a blast playing in the snow and sledding. I guess we should have put up the Christmas tree since we haven't gotten around to that yet, but there is always this weekend....Today we woke up to below zero temps and a wind chill of -25, which is expected to last most of the day.....
