Winter Blues

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Winter Blues’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I’m using the very cute Warm in the Winter image today and have created a very simple ‘wintery’ card.


My image was printed onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: E11, E00, E000, R20, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, C8, C6, C4, C2, C1, C00, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91.

I’ve added some ‘True Snow’ to the snow covered areas of the image to add some dimension.

Here’s a close up of the image.



Stamps: Warm in the Winter (The Paper Shelter)
Card: Midnight Muse (Stampin’ Up), X-Press It Blending Card
Papers: Retired Stampin’ Up
Ink & Markers: Copic Markers
Dies & Punches: Oval Framelits (Stampin’ Up)

If you haven’t already stopped by The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog then please do so you can check out the wonderful creations the rest of the DT have come up with.
