It's cold outside


This is my design card for today's Sweet Pea Stampers challenge: it's cold outside.  Please click on the link and see the wonderful creations of the rest of the team - and please join in the challenge - there's always a voucher to be won!

The image is 'snow fae' by Rachel Anderson. I printed this digital image on some light aqua card and then brushed over it with a mix of peacock feathers and broken china distress inks.

I used a couple of offcut strips of aqua/turquoise mirror card on the sides with an embossed piece of card brushed with the distressed inks in the middle - I used the A4 'star of wonder' Embossalicious embossing folder with my eBosser. Ribbon with gems was from Hobbycraft. Snowflakes were punched from scraps.

It is do difficult to get a photo of a card that has mirror card on it - I tried and tried and this is the best I could do. Unfortunately, it doesn't show the image as well as it is in real life.You need to look at it 'head on' to see it clearly.
