Snowflake Wishes

     You know how every once in a while you get a card finished and it looks and feels exactly the way you imagined it would?  Terribly pleasing, isn't it?  Well, that's what happened with this card and I just love it !  :-D

     The image is one of the newer ones from Conie Fong, called "Snowflake Wishes" and I think she's so beautiful.  

     When I first printed this image, I thought about making an entire scene with her rather than just a single-image card.  But I spent so much time on the coloring, adding lots of shading and highlights, that I decided on just the image as the focus.  I find that when it comes to Conie's images, I love to put the detail into the coloring and I rarely make scene cards with them.  

     I did take time to do a bit of water coloring on a scrap of water color paper which I added to the background.  It does look a bit like a stormy sky.  :-D  In any case, here's another card for my Christmas stash.

I used Peacock, Linen, and Mint colors
(plus Peach for her skin)
which came from Color My Heart #396.
Colored with ProMarkers 
Glitter added to snowball, snowflakes, and wings
Cut with QuicKutz die &
     trimmed to show glitter paper
Silver glitter paper cut w/ Quickutz die
Background dp made w/ water colors
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Sentiment printed and hand cut


     Conie Fong has two challenges that run every month and they can be found on our Facebook page.  One is for coloring only and the other is for completed projects.  Each challenge requires the use of a Conie Fong image but how can you resist any of her cute images?  I hope we're going to see you playing along.  Don't belong to the Conie Fong FB group yet?  Joining is free so join us and come play.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

What a great match of watercoloring in the background and your image is adorable and excellent coloring, and there are just times you don't want to make this into a scene... excellent choice of your layout. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.
