The Snow Queen

     I was so sad to find that one of my favorite artists has closed his challenge blog.  :-(  But I adore all his artwork and will continue to use his delightful images.  Yes, I'm talking about Rick St. Dennis.  This image is especially precious to me since I live with a couple of felines who think just like this!


     I used ProMarkers to color the image and added a tiny pearl to her scepter.  I fussy cut the image, and layered it onto a piece of foil paper.  The little snowflakes were embossed with a stylus and the corners were rounded with a Fiskars punch.  I did learn the hard way that the punch didn't work well on the heavy foil paper but at least the corners were rounded.

     Those two pieces were mounted onto a triangle scrap of mulberry paper before I added it to the card front, which had already been chalked around edges.  I added sets of three pearls to three corners and then added the sentiment.  I think she's a perfect Snow Queen!
:-D

  10. Agree about Rick, so sad. Your cat is definitely the Snow Queen, I haven't seen mulberry paper in a while, it's still fab and shows her off beautifully.
