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!

Very pretty and cute at the same time. Love that image and the snowy background.
That's too bad about that site closing shop.

What sad news indeed! This is a wonderful image, with such a great sentiment! Love all the techniques you've used for this card - that foil looks fantastic, and the 'furry' mulberry paper is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing your sweet card with us at Passion for Promarkers! Linda

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.
