Oh My Goodness!!

Where does the time go???  I cannot believe that it has almost been a week since I last posted anything!! Sorry everyone.  There's just so much upheaval here at the moment and the days just disappear before I realise!

So without further ado here is a card for you!!  It has been so long since I've entered a challenge but I thought that I would enter this card into The Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 122 as I've used all PB stamps on this card.

You probably can't tell very well from the photo but I embossed the main card and blue/green panel using my Cuttlebug along with a Crafts Too snowflake embossing folder.  The ribbon did start out white but I coloured it with one of my red Copics to match my image and the snowflakes are a combination of a Martha Stewart punch (Glacial Snowflake) and a Woodware snowflake punch.

For the main panel I stamped my girl image (Gift of Giving) with black Memento onto Digital Smooth Cardstock (from Craftwork Cards) and onto a Post It note to act as a mask. I next coloured her with Copics popped my cut out Post It note mask over her, tore a piece of paper to act as a further mask for the snow area and then inked the tree stamp up (Starlit) with a Bundled Sage Distress inkpad and stamped it along the panel making sure to overlap the trees now and again. These were then lightly coloured with a G40 Copic marker.  The sky and snow areas were also done with Copics and a Copic Blender pen and then the wording (from Winter Whites and Greens) was stamped over the top with a brown inkpad.

Copic Colours
Skin - E11, E00, E000 and R20 for cheek
Hair and Sleigh - E99, E35 and E50
Clothes and presents - R59, R37, R35 and 0
                                   G99, G94 and BG11
                                   E35 and E50
                                   R85 and R81
                                   E47, E43 and E41
Snow - W3, W1, BG11 BG10 and 0
Sky - B63, B60, W1. B000 and 0
