FS88 Snowy City

I was excited to see this week's featured stamper. Anne Ryan has left kind comments on many of my cards. Now it's my turn to honor her! Sorry I'm a little late.

I choose to case this card. I changed:

1) the stamp set however I kept with the little buildings theme
2) I added red to the overall design
3) I changed up the sketch a bit

I was inspired by two others today as well. I've been wanting to add snow to my images like Kittie does. I admit I had to take a really deep breath before I stamped that white over the top of my sky and buildings. Now, I love the look. I was also inspired by Michelle to try to do Christmas cards for my challenges. What a great idea to have fun while "getting the job done".

Although its difficult to see. I added little snow drifts by sponging some bashful blue near a mask of torn paper. Then I drew a line of glitter pen over the drift and smeared it with my finger. Here's a close up:

Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Holiday Lane, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Snowfall
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Bazzill Black
Ink: White, Bashful Blue, Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor Pencils & Baby Oil, Ribbon from Mike's, Glitter pen

On a different note, you know your style is really becoming prominent when you 6yo DS picks up on it. He drew me a picture the other day and divided his scene up like I always do. He even used red which is my favorite color to layer with. How cute!
