The Sweetest Kiss

Today I'd like to share a card I recently made for a 'Snow' Challenge.  I used a new stamp I received for Christmas  ~ this adorable Penny Black Winter Fairy.

I started by stamping her on a 6" square and coloring with my Copic markers.  I used Wink of Stella, Clear on the 'ice' on her wings after coloring.   I'm NOT an artist but tried to draw in the snow and added a few shades of Copics on the snowy hills also.  

I wanted it to look like she was 'making magic' when she kissed the snowball, so I stenciled in the stars.  I made sure they were in a small pattern near her face and the stream of stars broaden as they flowed behind her.  I used the Altenew Milkway Stencil to give this wavy effect. 

When completed I used Pink & Main's Stitched Rounded Square die for the edging.  This reduced the size to about 5 1/4" square.  Next I cut a solid coordinating aqua mat about 1/8" larger than the colored image.  For the card base I selected a 6" white base and covered the front with a galaxy paper.  I secured the mat and colored image to the card ~  front tilted to the left.  This left plenty of room in the bottom left corner to add a sentiment when I decide how I'll use the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  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.
