Magnolia Down Under #19 - Winter

Over on MagnoliaDownUnder the current challenge is to make a card using a magnolia image with a winter theme.
I have just got a whole new batch of magnolia images and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use Tilda & Edwin ice skating!
When I think of winter, I think of snow and ice skating. We don't get quite that cold where I live, so I have to rely on memory for my one trip to the snow when I was a teenager ;-)
this layout has been inspired by the Creatalicious Sketch again!
Metallic square card used as a base, 'winter wonderland' vellum used as background, panel embossed by cuttlebug using snowflakes folder.
Magnolia image coloured in with watercolours and highlighted with kindy glitz.
I used material paint for cuffs to imitate fur - not too sure it was successful ;-(
Snowflake was cut out using my CraftROBO and highlighted with a pearl.

  3. Cathy, beautiful card. Lovely colours you used. I've never tried colouring with watercolour myself, but your colouring looks wonderful. Great job with your vellum and cuttlebug.
