Ice, Ice, Bailey!

Hello everyone!

I am very pleased to be showing you this card today.

I am excited for two reasons.. one being that I am Guest DT for Through The Craft Room Door for this week, and two I am beyond proud with how this ice wall/card turned out.

Isn’t that just awesome?!

Seriously though, how many times have you made something and being in awe of it once it is done?

I can honestly tell you that for me it isn’t that often.

This beautiful image is a new winter one from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, and she is called Candy Floss Crew Winter Bailey.

To bring this scene to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

I learnt this awesome ice wall technique from Kit & Clowder Create & Learn monthly markers class.

And the whole scene was created with just my normal HB Pencil, and my Copics & White Uniball Pen. Smiles.

Just look at all of that delicious sparkle! Grins.

The snow flake dies are Sweet Dixes from That Craft Place.

And that gorgeous bit of bling in the centre there is done with my Shimmer Stickers by Papermania.

That gorgeous, glittery card is very old, and I was delighted to find a box of all different colours hiding at the bottom of my draw.

The purple layer card is from Papermill Direct.
