Winter Blues Tiddly Inks Challenge

Tuesday, December 9, 2014


Got the winter blues? Well, why not channel that into a fun challenge--Tiddly Inks Happy Winter Blues Challenge!  
The Faythe Gives image I used on this card was so much fun to color with my Copics. I loved adding all the lumps in her sack and the folds and gathers in her dress and hat, and it's always challenging, in a good way, of course, to use non-traditional colors at Christmastime. Can you see the 3-D fur on her hat and dress? I used my Snow Marker there. That stuff is fantastic!
The inside of the card has a simple sentiment and several circular layers. I like to have sparkle somewhere on my cards when I can work it in, so I added Diamond Stickles to the white snowflake layer, and colored the little ornament stamp with silver and gold Wink of Stella markers.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT's happy work, then grab something blue and link up your own creation to the Winter Blues challenge! This is the last Tiddly Inks challenge of 2014, so if you miss it, you'll have to wait until January for the next one! ;)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a Happy Winter day!
