This week our Muse for MCV is Marilyn Cotter and she has done such a beautiful and traditional card ...well it is here, fingers crossed the snows are late coming this year :)
I LOVED that sentiment btw !!!!
For my card I took inspiration from the Snowman of course,( I used three as I wanted to also use a friend type sentiment for my card) the snowman was from a bargain bin and cost a £1! and has sat about for nearly a whole year waiting to be used.
I coloured using promarkers ,their scarf's to match Marilyns ornaments,and used a Clearly Besotted holly stamp to pop on to their hats .I blended some sky with chalks and versamarked some snowflakes onto it and cut it out using lawn fawn stitched rectangles. (The sentiment is from Mama Elephant ) and added it to a white card before putting it on to a navy card base - which I thought was what Marilyn had used but I now see it was black ...oops!
The next step was the photo ... I have been all over the house trying to get a decent one,as this is something I do all the time I'm sure I must have the dullest/darkest house in Aberdeen........even a daylight lamp doesn't help and picasa can only brighten so far !:(
But thanks for looking
