Winter Beauty


I love fall, but there is so much beauty in the winter, too!
While I was coloring the image I posted Monday I also colored this one. Aren't red and turquoise so great together?
I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding for my paper. The card base is Baja Breeze, then a layer of retired Blue Bayou. The nestabilities oval is cut from Ruby Red as is the oval punch. I almost always use Papertrey white for my image stamping and this is no exception.
I had this sparkly snowflake button and it stuck after I cut the back off. I used liquid applique and then Stardust stickles on the trees. I don't think it shows (unless you click to enlarge the picture, but I used a soft blue H2O on her jacket. (Lisa, I finally bought some H2os!!) White gel pen dots around the ovals and some extra stickles on her lantern and wings and I put it all together. This card is kind of a companions to this one:
Now, I'll have to do spring and summer Tildas!
I got the Winter Trees and the Tilda with lantern here:

I'm sorry this is getting long, but listing the colors of copics seems to make people happy and I'm all about that!
Here they are: Face E00, E02 and cheeks R20. Browns: E31, E33, E35, E37, Reds R05, R17, RV29 and R46. I also used a light pink on the underside of her hat, don't remember which one (sorry), blues: BG10, BG72, BG09
Thanks for reading all this!
So happy to have internet again! It's going to be a great day!
