The Amazing Things You Do

Today I'm here with the Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team and a new challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Knitty Kitty Digis, an Etsy based business from the UK.  They have some amazing Digis that I hope you will check out this week.

For my Design Team card I have selected one of the Build a Snow Scene Quintuples ( Florentina, Felicia, Fifi, Flavia and Francine).  Here's my completed card and then a few details about how I made it. 

 After printing the image on Neenah 110# card stock, I colored her with my Copic markers and then added an icy cold water stream with an iceberg scene and several low hanging wintery clouds. I am not an artist but had previously completed a similar background during a Whimsy Stamp Company retreat under the instructions of Canadian Artist Crissy Armstrong.  What a talented and patient teacher she is!  

After completing the coloring,  I used Pink & Main's Stitched Top Note die for the gray background and mounted both on a sky blue 5 1/2" square card base (with the fold on the left side).  I completed the card with a purple organza double bow and a tag  ~ You Are Amazing!  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  1. Oh Pam, your fun and beautifully made card made me smile - a flamingo on skates in the icy cold - a fun juxtaposition.
    Stay safe

    1. Thank you Maxine ~ My favorite fan! What else can you do with these 5 sisters but put some purple socks on her and make her shine! I do love a challenge and the Colour Crazy DT came up with some great cards for this weeks sponsor for sure! Thank you for always brightening my day with your comments. Hugs!

  2. Hi Pam, A lovely card, I am afraid your card will not be in the draw as there isn't enough pink on it, there to be 3/4 of the card has to be in pink. Marlene

  3. I think this is such a fun card. It's really cute. [Bunny]

  4. All I can say after chuckling at the flamingo in skates, is WOW! You've made a wonderful card and the background is amazing, such great colouring.
