Woofie in the Snow...

Okay, so we don't have a snowy Christmas here in Oz, but it is nice to think of.... I've had a Canadian white Christmas, and loved it.  My choice of image for this week's challenge at Michelle Perkett's Studio Happy Holidays Challenge is Woofie In The Snow....

Ingredients: Cardstock- Kaszazz; Chalk - Pebbles Inc.; Glaze Pens, Stardust Pens - Sakura; Glitter Sentiment - Upikit; Heart Rhinestones.

I thought this image would be just perfect for a special young friend I make cards for... she loves dogs!  I first coloured the image: white glaze pen for the snow covered trees, Brown Glaze for Woofie, Stardust pens for his hat and scarf. I used white glaze pen on his hat trim, then added glitter glue for more dimension when it was dry.  After all that was nice and dry, I added blue chalk for a subtle sky.  I finished the image with silver glitter glue to all the falling snowflakes.

After triple matting the image, and fixing it to the wonderfully textured cardbase, I added heart rhinestones to the corners.... and can you believe that they are mobile phone decorations!

So our challenge for you at  MPS this week is to make a card or project using "Holiday" images from the Michelle Perkett Studio!  If you don’t have any of Michelle’s images there are wonderful images in Michelle’s Etsy store and you never know what you might find at the Crafters Digital Art Center group!

Our challenge is sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studio Etsy store, and our randomly chosen winner will be awarded one digital image of their choice from Michelle's Etsy store!
