Fun Folds - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 27th of October, 2017

I'm trying to get my blog post in on time this fortnight, especially as I missed last fortnight as we were away on holidays and I couldn't get my act together!

Anyway, this fortnight, we are hosted by Cindy, who has chosen the theme:

I wasn't really sure on the fun folds theme, but then I did a google search and found that it was a stepper card or a shutter step card to name a few! I have had some of these cards for ages and never used them! So I settled on a Side Step card as it was a lovely clean white.

Here is a close up of the colouring:

Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers. I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some. I opened my shop a month later so I could sponsor challenges and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey. I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby. 
Welcome to my world Andrea xx

To make my card, I digitally printed the digi Snow Happy from SheepSki Designs on X-Press It paper. I then had my Silhouette Cameo fussy cut the image (I think he badly needs a new blade and of course I always need a new mat!) 
I have coloured the snow angel snowman with the following Copics:
  • red - R32, R35, R37
  • green - YG06, G17, G29
  • orange nose - YR00, YR09
  • arms - E74
  • snow and shadows - C00, C0, C1, C2, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • coal eyes and buttons - black Wink of Stella
  • outline - BV0000

The Side Step Card is from
I have used two papers from a really old Christmas Stack from Die Cuts With A View, a glittered cardstock and some washi tape on the panels (both from my stash).
The image was then adhered on top with dimensional squares.
