High Hopes Snowlady

I decided to ink up this adorable high hopes snowlady for the color challenge this week on Splitcoast.

I colored the snowlady with copics and cut her out. I also cut the bird out separately. I ran by white bg rectangle through my cuttlebug with the snowflake folder. This was then sponged with baja ink. I tore 4 strips of white paper then inked the edges and accented them with stickles. I adhered them to the cb bg overlapping each slightly. I then attached my snowlady and nestled her in between 2 of the layers. The bird was popped up on her shoulder and stickles were added to accent the snowlady and the cb bg. I finished the card by adding some snowflake punches that I painted with shimmerz. If you click on the photo, you can see a really good close up of it.

stamps- high hopes birdie friend snowlady
CS- not quite navy, baja breeze, kraft, white
accessories- stickles, white gel pen, ms doily lace punch, copics (E31, E33, E37, E29, E47, BG10, BG72, BG75, RV10, RV11, C1, C4, blender), not quite navy inkpad, aquapainter, baja ribbon, ms snowflake punches, angel wings shimmerz

**I was asked which browns I used on the mittens and hat. They are colored with E31 and E33.

Hope you are all safe and warm. Frigid cold temps here again today!
