Winter Wonderland on the 3rd of December 2021

 At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Stacey!
Welcome to our twelfth and last challenge for 2021.

Our theme is:

anything Christmas goes

So here is my project:

I also took a photo inside last night:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of ANYTHING CHRISTMAS GOES.

Our sponsor for this challenge is SheepSki Designs:

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. 

In January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so 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

We had a choice of two images and I chose the image Snowman Selfie from the wonderful Andrea at SheepSki Designs, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then used my paper cutter to cut around the image after I have coloured it with the following Copics markers:
  • red - R24, R29, R59
  • green - G14, G07, G28
  • black - C5, C7, C9
  • stick arm - E27
  • pipe - E93, E95
  • orange - YR02, YR04, YR09
  • snowmen - C00, C0, C1, C3
  • coal eyes and mouths - black glitter pen
  • white of the hat - clear Wink of Stella
  • outline - C9
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring - hopefully you can see the sparkle!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
