Winter Wonderland

It's a quiet Sunday here in NEPA, but not for long!  Snow is supposed to move in tonight and not leave until sometime on Tuesday.  Is it spring yet?

Speaking of winter, that was the theme for this month's Tiddly Ink's Challenge. I decided to play along this month.  I decided to us Tiddly Ink's Skating By Clear Stamp Set for my card.  I started with a piece of water color paper that I colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, and Seedless Preserves).  Once I got the colors mixed the way I wanted, I decided to add some shimmer, so I colored the entire background with my Wink of Stella.  I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers, trimmed her out and added some Stickles to her hat and coat.  A couple scattered rhinestones for some more shimmer makes this card complete.

And yes, I did photograph the card out in the snow!  As I was setting up the picture my daughter waked by and said...."OOOOOOOHHH  ARTSY"!

Looks like I'll have plenty of time to sit at my desk and play starting tomorrow afternoon.  Wonder what I should do!
