Looks like both my hubby and I have the dreaded winter cold and sore throat. Hope it gets better before Christmas. There seems to be a lot of it around even over in Italy as my friend Chris cancelled on Wednesday as she had come back from looking after the Grand kids with a shocker.
So it's been a while since I did any crafting or sat at the computer typing and it has been noticed! So for my friend Di's benefit here is a card for today.
The little skier is a LOTV stamp minus the little dog, which I didn't want on this image. I used Copics to colour him and the trees which were cut from a Marinne Christmas tree die LR0136. None of the trees are the actual die, the 3 behind the skier have only 3 branches and a reduced tip and the foreground trees have had the bottom branches cut away. These are the colours I used:-
Hat gloves and scarf - B99,97, 95,93 C5,3,0, blender
Skis - C10,7,5
Ski suit - R39,37,35,32
Trees - YG67,63,61, G29,28,21, YG17, E59,57,55
The snow was made using Stampendous chalky white embossing enamel. I always get this all over and very little on the project where I want it, so I hi lighted some areas with an embossing pen first.
The background to the central image was a piece of card embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. The hills I cut freehand and the frame was also cut freehand, then the middle cut out using a Sizzix Ornate labels 2 die. This is mounted on pads and the trees and skier mounted on top.
The inner was layered with some swiss dot embossed card and a LOTV sentiment stamped onto a small label cut out on pads. Snowflake from a Woodware punch.
