Snow Family

I had a bit of a festive crafting session yesterday afternoon, and made three more Christmas cards for the pile...the first one features a cute snow family from the Prairie Fairy. I coloured them using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the snow using a Wink of Stella pen. Inspired by the gorgeous colour combination on 'Turquoise & Lilac' for this week's Less is More challenge...I used Distress Inks in those colours (Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord & Wilted Violet) 'smooshed' on to my craft mat to create the 'sky' background. I then heat embossed my Simon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow' stamp using WOW 'Sparkling Snow' powder, and laid it behind the snow family. I matted it all on to some purple card, then added a sentiment from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.
